    Hello,
    My name is William, I am new to chickens. however after much research, I have decided that I would like to start Keeping wonderful chickens for egg production, as well as a great learning and knowledge. I have found three breeds I am considering The buff Orpington, the Dominique(this one really interests me as its more uncommon) and the Australorp, and advice would be awesome. I shall post more info in other sections. I am From Dallas Texas area and I am 30 years old. Dont really know what to put here, but I plan to start designing my coop in the next few days. Thanks.

    Hi and welcome to BYC from northern Michigan [​IMG]

    My sister lives in Dallas on the north side, always love to come down and visit.

    Google the Henderson chicken chart for a very useful resource on breeds of chickens, you will really enjoy it.

    Thank you all, I have already learned so much. I have already drawn up the plans for my coop! I am excited to get started, I am going to round up as many recycled materials as I can to use!
