First Hatch: Baby Buff Orpingtons!

From the country...

These little gaffers are the new installment to the farm crew, with many more to come!


  1. whoa whoa whoa, did you hatch these little gaffers?

    To be think that something so cute can turn into a gross chicken.


  2. They are so cute, please put 3 or 4 girls in the mail (express post) for me since chickens may soon be allowed in Edmonton!
    Joke! But they really are cute. And I'll bet they're very pretty when all growed up.

  3. P.S. your blog is great: gorgeous photos, interesting links and updated frequently!

  4. Yes, these chicks came from the incubator. It wasn't a very good hatch, only got 9 chicks! Kelly, thanks for the kind words,you should do the bark yard chicken thing! 2-3 chickens would lay enough eggs for the family. The only hitch would be the winter. I have been toying with the idea of a chicken rental for city folks. The idea would be that they would "rent" a ready to lay hen for the spring/summer/fall months and the birds would come back to the farm after that. Toronto does'nt have the bylaw yet though....
