Reference Thread (the links!)

Clarkson, KY

This should be a shorter, sweeter compilation from the bird link thread. I am also adding livestock links as I get them. Work in progress. I hope to group by topic and have notes as to what each is good for. Please D-mail me if I've forgotten something so I can add it. Please D-mail me if a link no longer works.
