Our 2 dozen baby Buff Orphingtons arrived on Friday. They will be the next generation to the dozen 2 year old layers we have now. Claudia revamped the small pen in the (no) goat barn as a brooder. When they are old enough they will be going in the chicken tractor and will finally end up in with the other chickens in the food forest. We got the chicks from Great Works Feed Supply (support local!), and ended up with 22 chicks as one died in transit, and another died the first day in the brooder.
I’ll keep you updated on their progress.
