Hello :frow and Welcome To BYC! Good luck with your new chicks when you get them!
A great place to start is the BYC Learning Center, lots of good articles on all aspects of chicken keeping. https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center this is a good article on the what chicks need the first few weeks https://www.backyardchickens.com/a/...ks-the-first-60-days-of-raising-baby-chickens
And it is always fun to check out your state thread for chicken keeping neighbors and for advice on coops etc that work well in your area https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/68894/colorado
