    Hi [​IMG]

    I am just fantasizing about a few back yard chickens, for now.

    This seems like a fine place to start. I am happy Google brought me here.

    It is a beautiful October morning here in north Texas.

    Top of the mornin' to all!

    You know, if you really want an objective opinion, this is the wrong place to come! We are huge advocates of "chicken math" (you know-start out with 4 chicks, but two turn into roosters, so you need to get 4 more to replace them. Then you decide it would be nice to have a broody, so you get 3 Silkies. Then you see a couple more kinds you would like, and all 3 Silkies are broody, so they each get 5-6 eggs which all hatch. See where this is going?)!
