    Hi all! I live about 40 miles from Houston Tx on 5 wonderful acres of land. We recently got 5 chickens (4 hens and 1 roo). We have had them for a few months and got our first egg yesterday. They are assorted Bantams...2 White Japanese, 1 Black Japanese, 1 Self-Blue D'Uccle (I think) and the roo is an unidentifed Wyandotte. We also have 2 horses, 2 dogs, and 5 barn cats. Oh, and I can't forget to mention the husband and kids...14yr old son and 12yr old daughter. I look forward to sharing pics soon and using all the experinced folks here as my own personal reference library! Thanks in advance for all the help!

    Howdy from a fellow Texan [​IMG] We're up north of DFW.

    Went outside yesterday afternoon and noticed I didn't feel like I was being smacked around by the heat. Thought, "Wow, it must be cooler today." Checked and it was only 97. Woo hoo - cold front!

    Thanks for the warm welcome! In honor of my joining BYC, the girls gave us a second egg. That is 2 eggs in 3 days! Woo Hoo! I will definitely check out the Texas thread.
