    I joined in April and am just now getting around to "studying" your site. I started going to your website years ago, because I have always had a love for raising chickens. My Dad always had chickens as long as we were living in a place that would accommodate them. It is such a great hobby for ALL ages. I must have picked up some knowledge, growing up with them, but I am learning so much more from your site. I have posted replies on a thread and my only wish is that some people wouldn't try to make me feel like a moron and don't know my own chickens and what they need. "Know-It-Alls" who give unsolicited advice, when I don't think I am doing anything wrong, irk me. Anyway, I think 99.99% of the people on here are kind and helpful, without being condescending; more than 99.99%, actually, considering how many people use your site. This place was so helpful for getting ideas to incorporate into our coop design.
