Hi, We live in East Texas and are currently building a chicken house. We are on the list for 4 Americaunas toward the end of May. My husband's grandparents had a farm with chickens so he has had a little experience, but he is really a city boy. I am a total city girl, so this is going to be a very new thing for me. I am sure I will have lots of questions and look forward to learning about these 'girls'. BTW, we are new 'empty nesters' and are looking to fill some chicken nests!
