    I am a market gardener from steamboat spring, Colorado. I grow veggies for market and storage at 7000 ft. elevation. I have a flock of laying hens (4 ameraucanas, 7 RIRs, 7 BOs, 7 BRs) and one ornery rooster. One superdog, and one kitty. It's winter here for 7months, spring for 1, summer for3, and fall for 1. We get up to 500 inches of snow every winter and have a temperature range of -40f to 90f. anyhoo one of my RIR can't stand up [​IMG] so i dropped in for some advice.[​IMG] Look forward to learning lots from y'all.
