    Hi All! I am new to BYC and have found this site so helpful with raising my chickens. I purchased 3 silkie chicks from a local breeder last fall and all three are doing well. Two have turned out to be roosters so I am currently hoping to get rid of one and purchase more chicks as soon as they are available in my area but I am loving being a chicken owner and so anxious for my first egg! Should be any day now! Thanks to everyone for all the helpful information!

    Thank you for the warm welcome and the link for other Coloradoans. I am still trying to navigate my way around this website and figuring out how to post threads etc. I am hoping to post a classified for one of my roo's but cant seem to get there yet. I believe there is a minimum amount of post's needed prior to participating. I am sad to see him go anyway so I dont mind the delay but my pullet might start to get a bit overwhelmed with two roosters. Poor gal. I was hoping for three hens and turned up one hen two roos. I think I will go ahead and pay the extra $ to get started pullets. Thanks again!

    You need at least 20 posts to list in the sales area. Probably more effective for you to just post the roo in the colorado thread though. We have more lurkers and people likely to be near you. That's how I found new homes for two of my roosters last year. :)
