The best place to start is in the Learning Center. There are so many good articles there that will get you off on the right foot:

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

You may also want to post on your state thread - just put "Illinois state thread," in the search box and it will pop up.   You will be able to get a lot of information specific to your area and climate from other Illinoisians.  Maybe you will have chicken folk close enough to  actually speak with and visit.
