    Leadville Colorado
    I am wondering if anyone in Colorado has chicks for sale? I am looking for cold hardy breeds ( I live at 10,200 ft), females only ( roos illegal in Leadville) and only about 6(all I can keep housed until they feather out). I am willing to drive approximately 3 hours from leadville to pick up chicks. Can anyone help me?
    *I am concerned about mailing chicks as Leadville is so far from airports and delivery can be troublesome due to weather. I would hate to think of my chicks sitting somewhere just waiting to be picked up!

    My husband could bring you some chicks in Denver or Golden if you want some Rhode Islands or EEs. Both of those breeds (and Buff Orps) do very well where we're at (6800 feet).

    Hi! I'm not sure how far Leadville is from me, but I'm in Deer Trail. I have week old pullets available right now-- Rhode Island Reds, Barred Rocks, White Leghorns, California Whites, & Buff Orpintons. I will have even more variety in a couple weeks. And eventually some-- ducklings, geese, guineas & turkeys. I also have a lot of birds that Aimee (Manifested Wings- a local hatchery) hatches, for sale. They are straight run, but as they get a little older, I can sometimes tell what sex they are. But I've been known to be wrong!

    A little off topic but just wanted to pipe in that Aimee from Manifested Wings is selling me some buff orpingtons and has been an absolute pleasure to deal with.

    There's a really nice man in Pueblo that is hatching every week now. Name is Bill 719-948-3168. He has silkies, buff orps, geese, ducks; not sure what else. Good luck.

    We've gotten 8 chicks from Aimee in the last few weeks and they are fabulous. I've got a few more chicks coming from her in the next few weeks. We live at 8500ft and all of our chickens are doing really well. Good luck with your new adventure!!
