    I'm beginning a flock of four Wyandotte pullets this week in Aurora, Colorado. Looking forward to the new experience! I've built a custom coop & run for them, I hope to post pictures soon.

    Hi Jim... welcome! I have a gold-laced Wyandotte in my flock, and she's just wonderful. When I was out digging post holes for a new fence, she was the one that figured out there's a ton of worms down those holes. I had to keep picking her up out of the holes (she would shimmy all the way in them) to pour the concrete. They're curious and a sweet breed - great layers, too.

    Good to know! I hope they aren't too "chatty", the coop is next to my house.
