Hey all! My name is Nicole, I live in Northern Colorado just about 30 mins from the Wyoming state border, I'm completely new to all things 'chicken' and have been searching this site multiple times a week for about 2 months now so I figured I should just join. :) I have 3 Wyandottes, 2 golden laced, 1 silver laced, who are approximately 8 weeks old. I'm ridiculously overwhelmed, so I'm hoping to calm my nerves and get the hang of chicken raising with help from you guys here.

Thanks for reading!

:)

They look young, I'm new too! I did the same as you, I first got 5 chickens, without knowing what to do!! I thought I would be cleaning out their house everyday! But all is good except I'm down to 4 chickens now. I sometimes make water with electrolytes in them because its been 100 degrees here. Good luck on the chickens!
