Howdy from Texas!


Nov 20, 2015
Greetings everyone!

It's exciting to join this community. A little over a month ago a friend of mine offered to gift me three chickens. I never had chickens before. So I bought a book and dived online to research everything chicken. During my readings I had determined I wanted to build my own coop. Within a week I had learned a lot and built a decent coop with run. Then I noticed the majority of the information I was reading about chickens was found here, in the BackYard Chickens community. I liked and added the Facebook page. Now the addiction has grown to actually becoming a member. I look forward to learning more about everything chicken with y'all!

Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. Which part of Texas are you in? My wife and I were both raised in the great state of Texas. :eek:) If you haven't done so already, definitely check out our Learning Center at 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.
