    Hi from Colorado! Try searching your state in forum - social 'Where am I? Where are you!'. I've met lots of interesting, helpful peeps and even got chooks and a goose from some locals. Have fun and be sure to keep 'chicken math' in the equation [​IMG]

    Welcome. Lot of good info on this site. Try fermented feed for meat birds. I feed it to my layers.
