Howdy! I am brand new to this site, living in the DFW Westoplex (I'm about 1hr southwest of FW). I have 2 horses and 5 dogs (2 pets and 3 for SAR). I decided a few months ago I wanted to do chickens this year to help with bug control. My neighbor has them, why not me! So I got my outside coop built but havent had a chance to finish the inside. I was planning on getting them early April so no rush right (was going to start with TSC and see how that went). Wellllll..... I work in law enforcement and last night ended up having to adopt 6 -2 wk old chicks (red pullets and a white leghorn). And of course was too busy afterwards to get them home so spent the night with 6 patrol chicks. Gives new meaning to the phrase "chicks with guns". I'm not completely prepared, so now they are living in a wire crate with a space heater in my bathtub till I can pick up supplies on Monday. They are cheeping and bouncing around so I guess its working. Been reading this site! Glad it's here!
