    Hi all,
    I'm new to chickens and BYC and more of a reader than a commenter, so wanted to say hello and introduce myself to my neighbors! I'm in the Boulder/Longmont area and have 13 12-week-old pullets (Black Star, Red Star, EE, Lt Brahma, Speckled Sussex, White Rock). This is the first time I've ever had chickens and I can't wait for the first egg!

    I also thought I'd mention that I have a huge jug of Corid that I bought a couple months ago when we had a suspected cocci outbreak, I could only find the gallon size and there's no way we'll ever use it all. If any of you are in my area and find yourself in need of some, PM me! [​IMG]

    I was given 5 hens and not too sure what I have. Two I think are mostly Rhode Island red, there are two black ones the gal who gave me them said they were bantams but they are just as big as the red ones. When I have look at pics form sites I am thinking they are black stars. One chicken is maybe a laced wyndotte (sp?) some one else said she looks like a type that lays different colored eggs. She has laid pink eggs. She is white and grey with black speckles. All the other eggs are brown. I have tons of questions for this forum but not sure where to put them.

    What part of Colorado are you in?

    Welcome to all. :lol:Raised in Ft. Lupton now is NW Colorado. I will be having some roos for dirt cheap right away. At least 2 White rock roos and at least two RIR roos. Had to get the white rocks straight run for I am going to venture into breeding RIR and White rock hems and make Golden Comets, my favorite cross of chicken. Docile, friendly, not a huge eater, garbage guts actually and wow do they lay. So next spring I should have fert. comet eggs. Fingers crossed. Anyone interested in the roos let me know, I do go to northern denver often, mom in Thornton, and could deliver. They are about 10-12 weeks old.
