Hi - just saw this thread and thought I would go ahead and post. I am a small animal veterinarian in southwest Ohio who swore (after one really bad poultry lab in vet school) that I would never have anything to do with chickens! However as my life goes on and I visit friends who have small flocks I decided - once again - that I should never say never. Six chicks are coming to join our small farm at the beginning of next month, and this site has already been so much help! We are scrambling to get their accommodations built and the weather is hindering us but I feel sure we will be up and running by the time the chicks are ready to be moved outside. Thanks for a great website and Facebook presence.
