    Hi, Im interested in raising a few "backyard chickens" and stumbled across this page while searching for local Oklahoma hatcheries. I'm particularly interested in local groups that have educational opportunities or mentoring in the art of raising urban chickens.

    I raised rabbits as a child and I remember we had a few chickens and ducks, too but that was a loooooong time ago....
