Great resource! Incredibly informative, well organized. Useful whether you are a hopeful future chicken owner, providing information on set up, space, chicken needs - the things that will help you get a good start and increase chances that everything will go great. Also useful if you have some experience and need a resource for those times when things don't go so well (mites - ick!) Includes information on organic rules and guidance for problems if you want an organic flock. Covers medical situations for times when you need that, but more important to me, it is a valuable resource on how to manage your chickens to help you avoid those medical problems.
