Hello,

My wife and I just moved to a new house in Norther Colorado that allows chickens. The person in the house before had chickens and needed to get rid of them so we bought 4 that were laying. If my identifications are correct we have a Rhode Island Red, Golden Campine, Transylvanian Naked Neck (Buff), and an Orpington (Buff). The coop area is in bad condition and we are planning on doing a complete overhaul on the chickens space.

We are new the chicken game so any advice is appreciated. We try to do as much research as possible to keep our birds healthy, but I feel you can never learn to much.

We are looking for a good feed mix to start using.

We are also looking for clean coop tips. What would you do over in your coop if you did it again?

I am excited to be a part of the community and hope to hear from some of you all soon.

Thank you,

Adam and Katie

Very nice to meet you Adam and Katie. You can always post photos at "what breed or gender is this." to be sure about the breeds.
