    Hello all, my family and I just recently left the rat race of the big city and have moved out to Eastern CO in the middle of no-where. I have three little ones (one is old enough to start 4h this year) and we are building our new homestead 95 percent ourselves. I won't bore you with the details but other then the concrete work we are doing it all and the next thing on our list is to start filling our coop that we are building now. We were told this is the place to come for advice and when experienced enough give it... so here we are. Thanks

    Welcome. There's a bunch of us in CO. Most are in the front range but there are a few out E. Introduce yourself over there and you might get a local hit. https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/68894/colorado

    You might have to work to find some show quality birds as most of us are raising mixed breed or hatchery layers. I do have wheaten and blue wheaten ameraucanas if you ever want to try hatching some eggs.
