Hi, I am new to the board and had chickens when I was little. I loved them! Took a poultry production class 2 years ago and since have wanted my own birds. Planning on raising and eating quail and having a few colored egg laying hens. I am very excited about all of this because the only other animals I have I cannot eat! (Goats, horses, cats and dogs). I have been lurking and reading all the great threads. Really informative site.
