My name is Cara Smith, and I am located in Colorado. We are about an hour and a half from Denver. I became interested in chickens in 2003 and it has truly become a passion. I am NPIP certified, #84-60 and our flock is tested each year for Avian Influenza and Pullorum/Typhoid.
I am a member of the American Silkie Bantam Club, the American Poultry Association ,and the American Bantam Association.
I have had some issues in the past 6 years with predators and dogs getting into my pens, so purchased a 30x40 building to house the silkies year round.
My previous coop was falling apart, and they absolutely never used their outdoor space even when the weather was good.
I have shown my birds in Colorado mostly, but have previously traveled to New Mexico, Kansas and Nebraska. I would like to expand to a few more states if possible. All birds are vaccinated for Mareks Disease.
Please note, for the duration of 2020, I will NOT have any birds or chicks for sale. I am going through extensive medical issues, with requires me to stay out of the coop due to risk of infection, and with Covid-19, I cannot take a chance of getting sick. I hope to resume hatching in 2021.
