Hi there - I'm so happy to join this site, there is such useful information. This summer I just got eight chickens - 2 Buff Orpingtons, 2 Americaunas, 2 Australorps & 2 White Plymoth Rocks. I thought I would experiment with a few different kinds to see how they do in the cold and our altitude. I live in Evergreen, CO with my husband, 7 month old and two crazy dogs. I have a lot to learn and already have questions! Thanks!
