Howdy!! My wife and I are in the final stages of closing on our second home in Justin, TX-- Yep, Justin from Justin, TX. The best part about the new place is the size of the lot, location, and no HOA restrictions like we had previously in Chandler, AZ. The home/lot we are purchasing backs to a large estate property that has 15-20 friendly llamas grazing right up to our fence. We couldn't be happier as everything that is being built nearby is HOA and has next to no yard or backyard privacy. Woohoo!! My wife and I are avid chicken and egg lovers--- our 2 young girls are too! The house actually comes with 2 chickens that have been laying for just under a year. They told me they are speckled hens but I believe they are Barred Rock hens. I'll post pictures when we close on the house later this month. We both love this site and I have been using it as my primary resource for EVERYTHING chickens. This online community seems so great!! We can't wait to learn and grow with you all!
