How long have you owned chickens?

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!

How many chickens do you own?

11 now, but plan to increase to about 25 once we are fully settled in our new place

What breed of chickens do you own?

Dominiques and Australorps. Will add third breed later.

What do you like most about owning chickens?

That they are fun to watch and ours are very friendly.

How many people (other than yourself) have you helped get started owning chickens?

A number of people in the Austin Meetup Group, plus books, and various resources on the internet.


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.
