    Hello all, my family and I have recently moved and are building our homestead in Eastern CO and need a little input. We are thick in the busy as we are doing 95 percent of the house shop etc ourselves. Originally we were going to build the coop as one of the first projects but things got moved around and we are just starting it now. It is getting started before the house (we have our priorities right) but in all rearranging of projects we did not get our chicks ordered early as planned and are desperately seeking where one might go in our area. We were trying to avoid the big hatchery buy like murray mcmurray or the likes but will go that route if needed. We are not looking for show birds for 4h at this time but instead producers that are still true to the breed as much as possible. As far as breeds we are most interested in Orpingtons, Wyandottes, Australorpes, and old english game hen style. Not trying to get them all at once but would like two different ones and about 20-25 total. I am not a procrastinator by nature and cannot stand being behind for spring so can anyone give input to good stock availability for around the end of April for delivery. Thanks
