    I have a flock of 40 something, mostly Ameraucana/Rhode Island pullet crosses, but mixed with some Leghorn pullets, hairy feet fat hens and a buff Orpington rooster named Cogburn...also some guineas, pair of pea fowl, increasing herd of goats and a pair of llamas, plus a pair of migratory geese that decided to stay for a few years...

    my dogs and hawks/owls killed almost all my layers last year, so I build a super pen that I can still call them free rangers with... sometimes I'll let them out and try to keep them outta my gardens....

    Anyway, glad to be here...

    Welcome to BYC!!! There is a Texas thread you will want to join lots of local folks. Happy to have you I know what you mean about loosing chicks to dogs, I've been trying to convince my 3 heelers that chickens are friends for more than two years now! Lol
