Ask the Chicken Expert

Come to Gecko Hardware to visit with Jeff Raska from A&M AgriLife Extension Service to learn what to do (and not to do) to get your backyard flock flourishing! Jeff will be happy to answer questions about general chicken care as well as housing, bedding, feeding, healthcare and choosing the best breeds for the backyard flock.

Be sure to share with all your friends and those that are interested in raising backyard chickens. Gecko Hardware will offer 50% off all live chicks (3 weeks and older), and 10% off all other chicks, feed, bedding and accessories to Meetup members this weekend only, 4/5-6/2014.

Also, watch for Gecko Hardware's upcoming Egg Show and Coop Raffle, later this spring. Future meetups are being planned at Trinity haymarket and Roach Feed and Seed also :)

    How about adding a Spanish speaker, since there are several non-English speaking chicken people! No I didn't say Chinese, or Indian languaish, Dallas has more Spanish speakers then any thing else

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
