Hello! I am from Lakeview Michigan, U.S.A. and we plan to raise chickens in the Spring 2013. I stumbled across this website and thought I would join. I was pleasantly surprised to see the level of activity and look forward to reading and learning a lot this winter. I was reading the chicken breed reviews and found them very interesting. My favs so far are the Buff Orpington, the Barred Rock and RIR. Any advice is welcome! Best regards, Farmer 123.
