    Hello all! My name is Laura. I just recently got 25 Rhode Island Reds. I have had them almost a month. This is my first chicken flock. My family and I decided that we were going to work on being self sufficient and the first two things we have done is buy chickens and start a veggie garden.

    I live in Odessa, Texas with my husband, 2 daughters (11 and 9 yrs), 2 dogs (a blue healer and a great dane), 1 fish named Ninja and 25 baby chicks.

    I have been getting the majority of my chicken info from BYC for about 6 months. Thanks everyone for having me and thanks for all the great tips I have read so far.

    Welcome to the flock. How do your dogs feel about the chickens? I know someone with a red heeler and she keeps everything away from 'her' flock, even jumped up to stop a hawk .
