    We have had some fox trouble as well! We now have 7 hens and one adolescent rooster. (A neighbor gave us the rooster-- he was supposed to be an australorp, but he has yellow feet, so I'm guessing a Jersey Giant). I like to have the chickens free range for a while every day, but we can't let them out unless one of us (and our dog) is out there as well. We have a fox who is pretty darn bold. When our rooster gets a little bigger, we are hoping he will also provide a little protection for the flock.

    I just moved to the area recently from Cleveland. Now close to Purcellville, I'm looking to get a few birds together. It seems very strange that there's not more breeds to choose from despite the number of farms, etc., in the area. It would be nice to get a chance to network a bit and find out what trustworhy resources are nearby.

    Hi Folks! I am in the Plains/Marshall area. I moved here a year ago from South Eastern Michigan. I have 11 chickens right now, with a broody sitting on 5 eggs. Does anyone know of a poultry processing place in northern Virginia?

    Not off the top of my head but I do know that I just recently saw a add on Craigslist where a person was advertising a plucker for rent.
