I promised I'd provide them links here on the blog to the urban chicken resources I listed in my blog, so without further ado, a shout out to the following people/places to get your urban chicken on:
- BackyardChickens.com - a strong online community of backyard chicken enthusiasts and just about any question you have about the cluckers, someone at BYC will know the answer.
- MyPetChicken.com - a wonderful online source for small quantities of just the breed of chicks you're looking for. They've got lots of other good chicken supplies and paraphernalia, too, and don't forget to consult their Chicken Selector Tool to help you narrow down your choice of chick!
- FeatherSite.com's Poultry Page - While it hasn't been updated in over a year, the content about chickens is timeless (and rest assured chickens haven't evolved enough in the meantime to warrant any updates).
- Yahoo! Groups related to chickens (like San Mateo Chickens and Silicon Valley Chickens)
- 4-H Clubs
Finally, be sure to check out the Poulet Chalets article in yesterday's San Francisco Chronicle. It covers much the same information I did in my presentation (but it's in handy-dandy written form).
FeatherSite.com has been my bible for my chickens from day one. My biggest education on identifying and raising chicks has come from there.
Granny Annie, you've been my go-to person on all things chickens since I first started out, so your endorsement of FeatherSite.com is high praise indeed!
Feathersite.com has given me excellent tips and insights on how to connect and raise my chickens. They are definitely healthier and much happier now. Their production levels have also increased by some heights. Thanks again FeatherSite.com
