    Welcome to BYC, Megan. Glad you decided to our flock. My wife and I were both born in the great state of Texas, and I have some relatives in Weatherford, TX, which is not far from Poolville. Definitely check out our Learning Center link that Yorkshire coop left you with. There is lots of useful information there than will keep you from making beginners' mistakes. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with your flock.
