    Hello! I hav wanted to raid chickens since I was a teenager. Needless to say that was more than a few years ago, but I finally have the space and resources to fulfill this nearly life-long dream. I look forward to hitting y'all up for assistance and guidance. Thanks for being out there for me.

    Have you checked out the great "Learning Center," above ? It has answers to questions you haven't even thought of yet. You may also like to join your state thread and see if any BYCERS live in your area. Just put "Texas " in the search box above and it will come up for you.

    Thank you for joining us at Backyard chickens

    G’Day from down under Dirtboy209 [​IMG] Welcome!

    Best wishes to you and your new feathered family when they arrive.

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]
