Meet My Mentor and Fellow Chicken Enthusiast!
Back in September of 2010, I read an article about a woman named Jennifer Murtoff in Chicago who had started her own "Urban Chicken Consulting" business. I got brave and called her....she soon became my mentor and we stayed in touch. She recently posted a great post in her own blog about our introduction. Please visit her site and read about how I became a Urban Chicken Consultant and Poultry Sitter!
The Dr. Oz Show talks about what's "in" the chicken from the grocery store....and if it's good for you!

Interested in meeting other "chicken" people in your area?
There's a new Meetup Group!
Meetup ( http://www.meetup.com) is a way to connect and meet other people with similar interests; it's both an online gathering as well as an in-person group that gets together on a semi-regular basis.
We now have our very own local group! Check it out and join - there are no membership fees. http://www.meetup.com/The-Delta-Backyard-Poultry-Meetup-Group/
The Delta Backyard Poultry Meetup Group is for people who have, or are interested in having a small backyard flock of chickens for pets, eggs, composting, fertilizer, insect control, and meat, as well as for folks interested in learning more about living a self-sustaining lifestyle.
Inspired by the successful Atlanta, GA Backyard Poultry Meetup group (started by the Chicken Whisperer), our goal is to get together each month in various locations around the Delta region, San Joaquin Valley, and the Gold Country/foothills. We are gathering a great group of members who love to share their knowledge with others about everything "chicken".
With a lot planned for the remainder of 2010 and going into next year, we are hoping to add special poultry guests to our meetings such as avian veterinarians, feed experts, coop designers, and more!
We would love to meet you - all events are fun for the whole family! Membership and monthly meetings are always FREE! We are "eggcited" that you have visited with us today, and hope you will consider joining our group!
