    Awesome! Raising chickens is a learning process. You pick up new tricks and advice as time goes on. Use the forum as a guide for any questions or concerns you might have - best of luck!

    I am in the same boat. Keep reading, plenty of good information and people here. This forum has sure cleared up questions for me and bad information lingering out there. This has helped me a ton. Like the constructive discussions, respect for opinions when differ. I have put together a spread sheet of my birds progress and information so I have a quick place to go to get it. Sometimes finding something can take time, so I put the important things on my spread sheet. Have fun. I sure enjoy watching them. I need to quit giving to many snacks, could mess up there nutrition balance.

    Blessings from North Georgia.
