    My best advice:
    1st: WELCOME to BYC!
    2nd, locate good feed suppliers and co-ops in your area
    3rd.. get a couple good books on raising chickens

    There is a LOT of good info here, and very helpful folks who are real good about answering our "newbie" questions (I just started less than a year ago) You'll soon find you are addicted to the lil critters!!!
    (Who Knew there were SO MANY beautiful/fun breeds!?)
