Right, totally understand that - just wanted to know what breed(s) as different breeds would prompt me to refer you to different folks as there are several people in the general area who work with birds that are the type you are seeking and have the willingness to talk with you about their birds, so knowing what breed(s) you want helps to narrow the list a bit. Are you wanting heavy breed layers, ornamentals (ie silkies, cresteds, etc), bantams, game birds......? Are you wanting production based breeding or exhibition based breeding?
You can find the state threads here: http://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you - it's a great way to network with folks who are geographically close which helps in finding birds, etc.
