    Hi all,
    Thought that I would introduce my self and my family.
    We are a 4th generation family from Chaffee County Colorado, we have a small ranch just outside of Buena Vista,Colorado. We raise chickens, Boer meat goats, shorthorn cattle and 1 llama and Jack Russell Terriers, and 1 old horse.

    I am disabled so my official job is keeper of the home lol. My hubby works for the state, My oldest son works for Climax Molybednum mine in Leadville,CO and our daughter is a Junior at Western State College In Gunnison,Colorado.

    I am so glad that I found this website, I have lots of questions, even after years of raising chickens, i seem to find more questions than answers lol. I would love to hear from others in Colorado as well I currently have 18 hens, and I am looking for a Rooster, so if anyone has one to sell please let me know. We raise them for the eggs and the meat, so we butcher our own animals too. And we hunt Elk and deer in the fall.

    Would love to hear from all of you.
    Thank you
    Linda

    Welcome from the Western slope of Colorado!

    On your quest for Roosters - another Coloradoan, Chick-In-The-Burbs, is looking to rehome her rooster, Tiny. Check out the Colorado thread. He is a light brahma. Maybe you two could connect. I think she would be happy to give him away - just hopes he can find a home because she can't keep roosters.
