    Hey all, how exciting! I just moved from my tiny old house into a bewhome with a huge backyard just outside of Denver. With all the yard space, I decided to finally get a couple chicks! I'll be spending the next couple months getting my house together and building a coop with a nice run.
    I really want to get a couple bantam Orphingtons, but am having a hard time finding breeders in Colorado. Does anyone know of any, or of any other sites besides Craigslist that list stuff locally?

    Thanks!

    Probably the best thing to do is go to "where am I, where are you," in the social forum to find the Colorado thread and post on it. Hopefully someone near you will have banties. You might also put "Bantam orpingtons," in the search box and see what comes up.
