    I hope you'll still accept me even though I don't have chickens....yet! I am doing all my research on what breeds I want and where to get the best deals on them. Its been a long time since I had any. I raised Old English Bantams, Araucanas, Rhode Islands, and a plethora of other breeds as a kid in 4-H. I haven't been able to have them, because for the past 6 years I was living in an HOA sanctioned neighborhood. I just moved to North West Arkansas, though, and have finally broken free of HOAs! The house already has an adorable shed that I plan on sectioning off for nesting boxes. I can't wait to embark on this amazing journey. If anyone has any words of wisdom, or advice I would love to hear it!

    Also, you may want to stop over at this thread: https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/37675/arkansas-folks-speak-up the "local" threads can be a great way to network with folks in your area which can be very helpful when looking to source your stock as you can get some great leads on who has what breeds in the quality you might want.
