What a breath of fresh air this forum is. I've been reading for a few days now and I do believe this is the nicest forum I've come across on the web, ever! No fighting, lots of great information and friendly posters. I'm from West Virginia and was just doing a little research on chickens because I want to get some but have absolutely no experience in raising chicks or building and maintaining a chicken house. I ended up here with what looks like the mother load of information about chickens, as some really cool folks too.
