Ever gone into your local garden or feed store with a question only to be met with a blank stare? Do you ever find you've got a very specific problem and no one has any idea what your talking about? If you are a backyard farmer chances are that you experience this ALL THE TIME!
A really great resource for people like us is forums. There are forums on every subject and topic of interest. I am a frequent visitor to a forum all about chickens and they have been able to answer several questions about my hens' behavior and breeds. With most forums questions are answered within an hour and by someone who has experienced the same thing as you. I also like that I don't have to drive anywhere but can ask the question and go back to my regular routine. Something that unfortunately garden centers can compete with. I also find that sometimes I am able to help others with their questions.
Some of our favorite forums around here are:
Backyard Chickens Forum
Helpful Gardener Garden Forum
