Starting the Chicken Thang!

Hello all! So glad to finally be a part of this community!

I've long wanted a flock of my own and have finally moved out of the city to a home where we can have them! We're in north central Texas, and though I had chicks when I was a kid, this is my first time with peeps of my own!

I have 8 red pullets (from Tractor Supply Co) and 2 straight-run Auracanas, though one looks like it's going to be a Leghorn (they might have gotten them mixed up maybe?). They're all around 5-6 weeks old and were just moved our of the bathtub and into their coop this weekend.

I am loving looking through these threads at all the good chick advice... it's so good to join!

Looking forward to living and learning the chicken life!

Enjoy your new babies and if you have any questions, that is what we are here for. Welcome to BYC!
