    Hello from Washington! New to BYC and the city chicken concept! I grew up with chickens my entire life, egg and meat chickens. We had land where I grew up in Texas, and now I have a yard :(. Time to get back to roots though, and my chicks hatch date is the 18th!! Brooder is ready and I'm still building a coop. That will be posted on BYC of course!!

The learnng centre is a great place to start has lots of articles on raising chicks and chickens from keeping them safe to feeding and housing them. An article for almost everything you can think of, here is the link https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to our flock. Where in Texas did you grown up? My wife and I were both raised in Texas (Blue Ridge for her, Greenville for me). Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. What kind of chicks are you getting?

    Thanks all! For now I got a Silver Laced Wyandotte, a RIR, an EE, and Barred P-rock. Michael OShay, I grew up in South Texas by Pleasanton and Poteet. Later in life I lived all over but the last 8 years I spent in the Hill Country. I lived in Kerrville and worked in Marble Falls. I'm a Flight Paramedic so I saw "miles and miles of Texas" in every direction!
