    Just getting started, but cursed with a PhD. That means, you can't do anything without doing tons of research first--something they ingrain into us in grad school. So I've scanned the veterinary medicine textbooks on poultry, read tons of online info, cruised through several books, bothered my friends who have chickens for their advice, and generally gone overboard.
    Now I'm raising four Buff Orpingtons, two Easter Eggers, and two Barred Plymouth Rocks (definitely the leaders of the flock, always first to try anything new). What fun!
    Of course I have pix; thought you'd never ask:
