    I wrote this introduction but it disappeared so here we go again....

    My name is John.

    1. I do not have chickens yet but I will be receiving a 10x10x6 dog kennel today that I will be turning into a chicken coop.

    2. I plan on starting off with 6 chickens and see how that goes, maybe add more later on.

    3. My friend has silkies and those look pretty cool so I think I'll start with those and once I learn more about it and about other breeds, I may branch out from there.

    4. I found this site while searching about chickens online. I was also recommended to come here by a friend and local chicken lady!

    5. Some of my other hobbies are working out, hunting, fishing, shooting guns and bows, camping. I like doing things outdoors and when I can get my wife involved, its that much better!

    6. nothing else I'd like to share at this moment, maybe later on.

    Nice to meet you John. You may want to check out your state thread. Just put Texas in the search box and it will come up. You may find you have bycers as neighbors.[​IMG]
