Hello from the Clorado mountain top.

  1. Living up at about 9000 ft, gardening and chicken raising is challenging. But we won't give up.
    I always have a lot of questions so this must be the place for my chicken questions.

    We too live at high elevations of 7,000 feet. Gardening is REALLY rough! LOL Chickens do extremely well however. If you keep breeds that are very cold hardy and can take huge temp swings, you will do fine. :)

    Welcome to BYC. Question away - someone will have the answers.
     
  10. Thank you all for the warm wellcome.
    Right now we have 4 girls that we started out with to see if this all will work out. It worked out well so now we're thinking of getting 4 more this spring. We really like the fresh eggs.
    There are a lot of folks around us that have chickens and roosters. It is really nice in the summer to step out on the deck early morn and listen to the girls clucking and the roosters crowing in the distance.

    We plan on using the chicken poo for our flower garden ( of course after it has aged).
