    Hello all
    I am new to Back yard. I am located in East Texas. I have been reading a lot about chick es on line.
    I have a 20x20 enclosure. I plan to purchase 6 sex link layers. Primary purpose is for eggs.
    I have plenty of free range space. Any and all advice greatly appreciated.
     

  2. Welcome To BackYardChickens! One thing that I would recommend is to pick them up a lot when they are little. It makes a big difference if there is a problem with one when they are older and you need to catch it.

    Welcome from Western Kentucky. I would start with medicated chick feed, good bedding and lots of attention for healthy and happy chickens. It is a great hobby and fun for the whole family.

    Welcome to BYC.

    I had one Sex Link hen. She was an awesome layer. She was also my friendliest hen. I would definitely recommend the breed.
