    when i was 6-8 years old my father and i raised hens for eggs and it was a very pleasant memory. this is something that now that i have 2 young daughters would like to re-explore. i reside in a subdivision northeast of denver, as of yet i have been unable to determine the legality of keeping chickens at my residence so that is my primary reason for coming to this site, i am also interested in the community movement towards sustainability. i am looking forward to the exchange of information and expierience .

    Hi - welcome to BYC from the south side of Denver-metro! You should check out the Colorado thread if you haven't already. I am sure your daughters are going to love keeping chickens with you! My kids are crazy about the hens. Glad you're here!

    [​IMG] from Kansas, greasemonkey! [​IMG] Glad you signed up! I had chickens when I was a kid, too. Wish I had gotten back into it sooner. Best of luck with the legality aspect.
