    We were in CA, now in CO, and trying to figure out chick vs pullets and winter vs spring for starting, coops etc. Breeds we are looking at are Cream Legbar, Buckeye, Dominique, Welsummer, Orpington, Olive Egger and Cochin. Happy to be back!

    G’Day from down under cjpeeps [​IMG] Welcome Back!

    I hope you are able to find the breeds you are looking for. I have a soft spot for Cochins, having a couple of bantams myself, but they do go broody a lot! [​IMG]

    Welcome back! Once you have 20 posts, you can use the buy-sell-trade forum...maybe you'll find some of the birds you are looking for there. This is a tough time to find chicks but you should be able to find lots more in the spring.

    Good luck!

    [​IMG] so glad you have joined us.

    IMO - start with chicks in the spring - even if you elect pullets, the spring start gives time for planning, building and avoiding the issues of accomplishing the task in the winter.
