Hi! My husband Jerry and I are raising our first flock of chickens. We are members of the Austin Backyard Poultry Meetup Group, and will be moving, along will our "girls" to Waxahachie early in 2012.
Got 16 two-day old chicks in March 2011. Thinned flock to 11 at about 6 weeks, and hens will start laying within a few weeks. Yay!
11 now, but plan to increase to about 25 once we are fully settled in our new place
Dominiques and Australorps. Will add third breed later.
That they are fun to watch and ours are very friendly.
A number of people in the Austin Meetup Group, plus books, and various resources on the internet.
Hi Patty, If you ever make it to Dallas, check out our feedstore Trinity Haymarket in the downtown Design district 1715 Mkt Center Blvd 75207 specialize in non-gmo, organic feeds, whole grains, open-pollinated seeds, local honey, wheat straw, organially grown hay etc. Thanks!!
We missed you at Movie Night, but we knew you were there in spirit. Hope you are feeling much better.
That's a great suggest Patty. Michelle Hernandez would be the right person to suggest this to. I'm sure others would find this a convenient way to post pictures of their chickens.
I don't know if you have figured out where to post your pictures, but it should be on the main page under photos (I think). It's been over a year since I posted any photos, so I may be wrong. There are several categories, find one that fits what you are posting. Look forward to seeing your photos.
Hi Patty, welcome to the group. Keep us posted on your new adventure and feel free to post some pictures of your chickens. We love pictures.
