Hi all! It has been our dream for several years to be chicken owners. Our dream has come true! Some friends gifted us with 8 chickens!! We live in North Texas. We moved here in Aug, from Michigan. We are renting, but the landlords gave us permission to have chickens. We live in a wide open area, and haeks are our main concern. 7 of the chicks are about 6 weeks old, one is about a week old. Since they were given to us, we are still trying to figure out what kind they all are. We hope to build a coop soon, but have about zero experience in coop building.
