    Hello all! I'm from South Texas and new to chicken raising. Got my set up ready recently and had 2 hens (fairly certain Black Sex Links) around a year and a half old that I adopted from a friend who had to move. Both were broody and I knew someone with a large flock who gave me some fertilized eggs. They have a group of chickens and a rooster that were brought in off of a property that were living and roaming on. Some of the eggs started hatching recently so my flock is growing! Both hens are doing great with our newest chicks. 7 eggs left to hatch. Looking forward to
    seeing all the babies and starting our flock! [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    G’Day from down under jodybrook [​IMG] Welcome!

    Aaaw, congratulations! So, so cute!

    As you have already received links to some good starting points, I will just wish you all the best.

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    If you would like to share more pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]
