    Thank you for adding me.

    I currently am looking to buy two hens. I am not experienced in raising backyard chickens but really want to start. This would be a good opportunity for my children to learn about hard work and taking care of animals,

    Thank you again.,

    Also if anyone is selling two hens please let me know. I am in Spring Tx

    Greetings from Kansas, bboy1407, and [​IMG]! Great to have you aboard! Chickens are great for teaching kids all sort of things about responsibility! You might also take a tour of the great articles of the Learning Center - they will answer questions you already have and many you will have:
    And if you want to chat with fellow Lone Star Staters, find the TX thread in this link:

    G’Day from down under bboy1407 [​IMG] Welcome!

    At the risk of sounding like a chicken math enabler, can I recommend you consider 3 chickens? Sadly, we lose chickens along the way and if you only have two and lose one, your remaining hen will be very lonely. I have been there, done that and got the T-shirt! Had to race out and find my lone chicken a friend, waive quarantine etc. Now, I have 5 and make sure I never drop below 3.

    Good luck!

    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.

    If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]

    I would encourage you to start with at least 3 as Teila mentioned...chickens are flock animals and do better in a group.

    Best of luck to you!
