    i have a weird question and i have already posted this in the ..where are you... oregon... area but i wasnt sure where to post this at really. but i am looking for someone who will come to my home and go over my flock and coop (check for mites, look at their poop to look for any signs of, well, anything) with me and talk about or explain their findings, and things i can do to improve my flocks well being. hopefully for free. if not for very very cheap. is there even someone out there that does this kind of thing? if so some help on finding this person would be great.
    thanks in advance for any information

    The only ones I have heard of were in the Chicago area.I believe it was something like "Chicagoland Chicken fanciers - not sure if it was gratis or not. I don't believe it is common yet. I would imagine some large cities might have "chicken consultants" for a hefty fee. You can get a great education through Backyard chickens. Have you visited the Learning Center? There are even " poo charts," to illustrate what is common for various reasons." Put a topic in the search box and see what comes up.

    Ask at your local feed store if there is someone in the area that has been a chicken feed customer for some time, that might be able to help, or any of the 4-H, or Ag students that could come tutor you a bit, and leave your phone number with them, and give them permission to have someone call. You might also ask about local message boards. At least offer to pay for their gas. You might be able to contact the local high school, and talk to the Ag teacher too.
