I grew up with chickens in Washington State. Now my hubby and I live in Colorado Springs and nearing our 60s. A couple years ago, we joined Colorado Springs Urban Homesteading and have since learned its legal to have up to ten hens, no roosters, in the city limits, so we have been researching how to manage chickens in an urban backyard. We are looking at coops. Our local Feed store will have baby chicks the end of March so we are gearing up for that, and joining BackyardChickens just seemed like the next logical step. Looking forward to sharing and growing here along with everyone else.
