Hello BYC, Just joined today, but I have read so much great information from this site over the years. I recently started my urban backyard flock in Austin, Texas. I have five pullets that are all about 2 months old now...a buff orpington, black sex link, americauna, brown leghorn, and a delaware. I had been bugging my wife for years about getting chickens. She said not until the kids are out of diapers. Then two years ago, for my birthday, I got permission to get chickens. I was about to jump in the truck to drive to our local feed store, but she put her foot down and said I had to build the coop first. Well that only took two years (actually still some work to do on it) . Although we did lose a chick the first day we got them home, the others have been doing great and my kids (2 boys) love having them. They named them: Flame, Tiny Forever, Rocky Raccoon, Comet, and Banjo. I will post some pics of the girls and the coop soon. Just saying Hi for now.
