    The Learning center is a great place to start, you will find answers to questions you didn't know you had yet. Then you will be prepared to branch out to specific forums that will fill you in even more on coops, predators, management etc. etc. We are still here to offer what assistance you require. Glad you joined the flock [​IMG]
