    I am located in Tallahassee and have decided (after more than a year of thinking about it off and on) to start a small backyard flock. I am here to do research as I get ready (although now that the decision has been made it is really hard to wait!).

    Howdy from Kansas, turtlewomyn and [​IMG]! I like your approach of research first, then purchase. [​IMG] I went the other way because I lacked the will power to wait and had to learn on the go! [​IMG] Thank goodness for BYC! Enjoy your birds when you get them. [​IMG]

    Yeah, I spotted some pullets on my local craigslist and just started corresponding with the seller, lets see how good my willpower is (or how fast my research skills are). I want rainbow colored eggs and she has a buff orp (6 months) and easter egger (6 months) for $5 each and bantam barnvelders for $10 each that are already laying. I have my coop design picked out (mother earth news mini coop and run made from a dog house and wire mesh) and am picking up some of the materials (the doghouse, found on craigslist) on the way home today.
