    Hello all...

    My wife and I are just setting up a coop and enclosure here in our northern Vermont backyard.

    Our only other poultry experience was a stint caring for chickens that were veterans of a West Nile Virus sentinal bird warning program several years ago. They either had been tested "positive" for the virus, or had survived an encounter with an animal such as a racoon. They weren't necessarily "pretty", but they were spunky...and good layers.

    We can see that this forum will be a great help in answering questions, hearing of people from all over (and, hopefully nearby) with similar interests, and also help in locating birds.

    Looking forward to shared experiences.

    Run while you can! Before you know it, you'll be building an incubator, then you'll need another coop, and you'll need "just a few more chicks." Oh, and
