    Hello Everyone,
    I've enjoyed reading some of your posts and thought I should introduce myself. Our family has been raising chickens for eggs for over 15 years. We live on a small farm south of Dallas. We enjoy our fresh eggs and the children like to collect the eggs. Recently, we had the idea to rent out a few hens, coops, and supplies to people in the city. We thought they might like the opportunity to keep chickens in their backyards without the commitment.

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided join to our flock. My wife and I were both raised in the great state of Texas, not far from where you are (Blue Ridge for her, Greenville for me). Raising chickens is a wonderful experience for children. My granddaughter (pictured in my avatar) loves our chickens. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. What kind of chickens do you have?
