@COChix I would be interested in a Black Copper Marans and in a Blue Ameraucana, but I can't keep babies because I don't have a space/place for a brooder. Six-week-olds are doable, because they can be in my little coop outside. If I were to pay you, could you do the first six weeks for me?
I would love to be part of a Metro Denver meet and greet, maybe -as someone suggested - around the Poultry Show at the Stock Show. Coming right up!
My little Leghorn pullet is finally laying lovely eggs -5 in the last week! They're not pure white, but they have a pinky-beige cast, which I love! My other six have varying degrees of red around their faces, but only the Leghorn is squatting and laying. Sigh.
I lost my little GL Sebright this past week - maybe it was too cold for her? She went into the coop well before sunset and way ahead of my other girls, hopped up to the highest roost, but just never fluffed up like the others.And one morning I found her cold on the ground of the coop. Another sigh. But all the others are fine - I hope!
May you all have a good winter, enjoying the beauty, if not the cold. Hope to see some of you at the Stock Show. PM me if you have suggestions or any interest.
