    Moved from Northern Nevada to East Texas in Sept 2014, but never fully unpacked.
    Decided living out of boxes and feeling sad about not having my chickens, ducks, pheasant, sheep & horses, was NOT going to help adjust, sooooooooo yesterday I brought home 6 Bantam chicks, and rejoined BYC today!

    Once you have chickens ya never wanna be without them! LOL

    Found some terrific ideas for my hen house in Nevada from members sharing their coops on BYC.

    After re-homing several horses, we converted 2 of the horse stalls into a coop & attached run.
    Left plenty of other stalls storage & a small barn eventually was built on the far end for sheep.

    I will be looking to see what new & creative designs I might use to create a new coop in Texas.

    I absolutely love your avatar. My son moved to Washington 7 or 8 years ago, two apartments, one townhouse later, he still has not unpacked most of the stuff he took with him.

    Welcome to the Backyard chickens flock, very glad you joined us [​IMG]

    My wife and I were both raised not too far from where you are; Blue Ridge in Collin County for her, and Greenville in Hunt County for me. Thanks for posting the pics. :eek:)
