Hi, I currently live in las vegas. My dream is to return to my midwestern roots in southern Indiana to start a small farm business with my wife and friend. We have started with nearly zero experience. Despite being in Las Vegas we began our backyard garden and aquaponics projects for hands on education. We've been knee deep in self education, pulling largely from youtube and online sources with several paperbacks making the reading list. We are highly interested in pastured poultry as a startup. I look forward to joining the permies community to learn and share our journey.
If anyone has any suggestions on forums to look at first I appreciate it.

Welcome to permies Will.
Since you stated that pastured poultry was high on your priority list, you should check out our "Chickens" forum.
Lots of good info there. Many newbie questions, and answers from many with years of experience.
Joel Salatin's book "Pastured Poultry Profits" is a great starting point for anybody wanting to go down that road.
You can probably check it out at your local library, but will probably find that you'll want your own copy to keep.
Good luck. Parts of Indiana get more rain on a typical summer day than 'Vegas gets in a year. lol
I also live in the city like you, but that has not stop me from planting and harvesting figs, citrus (flying dragon) and about 40 other fruit/nut trees.
All in frigid new england (inside boston,ma city limits)
