Greetings, I'm a new member, but I've been reading topics here for a couple weeks. I am doing alot of researching and planning before I get my chickens. And I thought I might as well join now. I'm sure I'll have a lot of questions, but I like to know as much as I can about what I plan to do, before doing it. I will be raising about 6 chicks for eggs. But I'm sure as soon as I have room, I will probably be breeding. That may be a couple years in the future still, but I'll have plenty of time to learn alot from all of you. I live in west-central Missouri (USA) and I am intrested in the Ameraucana breed. It would be ideal if I could find bantam Ameraucana nearby to get my first birds from, but I doubt I'm that lucky.
