    Howdy! I'm currently in Lewisville but I'm moving to Grand Prairie, TX in a month. My dad kept backyard chickens when I was growing up but all I remember is getting to play with baby chicks and my mom collecting eggs. I don't remember ever eating them though. Well, the chicken bug has bit me and now I'm just reading everything I can get my hands on. I found this site and it's been a goldmine! Thank you!

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. My wife and I were both raised in the great state of Texas, not too far from where you've moving (Greenville for me, Blue Ridge for her) and she has relatives in the Grand Prarie area. :eek:) If you haven't done so already, definitely check out our Learning Center at https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center. There is lots of useful information there. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Cheers.

    Thank you for all the welcomes and thank you for the link, Michael OShay! I'm scouring through the articles now. I just got back from the Texas State Fair and caught the chickens right as they were taking them away. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
