    Welcome to BYC! Glad you decided to join our flock. I assume from your user name that you are from Texas. My wife and I were both raised in the great state of Texas. You have a beautiful flock. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with your flock.

    Thanks. We are getting ready to raise mealworms to feed as treats, as they love the dried ones.
