    HI All!
    I am new to raising chickens. Although I must admit, I think I am addicted.[​IMG] Currently have 8 silkies, 22 Top Hats, 4 cochin Bantams, 2 ducks, 10 ducklings, 15 buff orpington chicks, 12 Silkie hatching eggs in the incubator (December 5th should be the lucky day!) , and 6 Rhode Island Reds! My husband and children think I have lost my mind. [​IMG] Just wanted to say that i appreciate all of the great information on this forum!

    Cheers!
    Sandy

    WELCOME fellow bird of a feather!!!

    I am new too! I really like this site. Be warned though...once the bird bug bites you...you are lost! It's an addiction! I am already thinking of what other chicks I am going to get this Spring. From my own hens AND ones I buy! LOL!

    I am in Northeaster Colorado (a spit away from Sidney NE)!

    Cheers!

    Paganfish,

    I am actually from the Denver Area! Definately gets a whole lot colder here in Nebraska! brrrrrr! :mad: I don't think I am ever going to get used to it. Everyone makes fun of me because I keep the heat lamps going in my chicken coop. They keep telling me that they don't need them. But I can't let my girls catch a chill! [​IMG]

    Wildsky,

    I have two cochin bantam hens and one rooster as well. I have some really great pictures of them. Once I figure out how to post pics on this site, I will. [​IMG]

    Hi, I'm not to far away from you. I live over at Lake WaConDa (a few miles from Union). I have 5 girls (a Buff Orp, a RIR, a EE mutt, a bantam Frizzle cochin, and a Dutch).

    There are a few of us from Nebraska here on the forum.

    Quote:I hear ya there. I live in the country here and the farmers think I am loony for the way I treat my chickens. I guess coming from Texas, I think anything below +20 is freezing so, ON goes the light! LOL!

    I LOVE Denver...but it gets more snow than we do...believe or not.

    Let me know if you ever need another cochin rooster. I am starting to think that I have two too many roosters in the coop. [​IMG]

    Thanks,

    I have NO idea where Union is...much less Lake WaCon'Da (what a funny name! LOL!). [​IMG]

    Also, I don't have any Cochins. I have seen pictures of them...wow, are they pretty! [​IMG]

    Are yours standard or bantams?

    Humm...maybe I'll have to order some this Spring! OH BOY!!! [​IMG]
