    Hello! I am fairly new to the community and was wondering if there are any backyard chicken meetings/expos/events in the US. I am definitely willing to travel to learn more about how to keep these creatures and meet more of my fellow bird lovers. Would love any information about where these events take place.

    When we lived in north FL, a county extension agent gave a class for beginners new to keeping poultry. You could try calling your extension office.

    There is a ton of information available here too. The Learning Center has a lot of very good articles in it:
