New to BYC and to chickens from Colorado. We currently have 5 chicks ranging in age from 8 to 6 weeks old. One sex link, four Wyandottes and one bantam. I will be posting soon with photos to see what everyone thinks about their sexes as I believe we have a couple roos.
I've been stalking this site for months learning as much as I could and I thank you all for the info! This site has been a great resource in our adventure.
We are currently finishing our coop, with many recommendations I have gathered from here and Pintrest. Feeling excited to get the little ones out of the basement and into their coop. Our challenges, living in the foothills of Colorado are cold, wind, coyotes, fox, raccoon and of course bear. The last people to live at our house lost their chickens twice to the residential bear so they tore their coop down. Hoping we have some better luck.
