    Hi... I don't know what section to post this, so sorry if it's in the wrong place. I did a search first and couldn't find anything related.

    I have a flock of 9 hens and a rooster and know the basics of chicken care, but am really wanting to learn more but can't afford to take classes from universities. I wouldn't mind taking basic ag. classes either related to growing food, but poultry is my main concern. I have searched the internet but can't find any place to get some education, or home study. I live too far froma community college to go there and take an in person class. Does anyone know of some sites online where I could learn more about poultry?

    Thanks!

    What specific information do you want to know? Do you have a library near you? Interlibrary loan can net you about any book out there.
