We have begun our new adventure with backyard chickens! I won a chicken coop package at the Seattle Tilth Harvest Fair last fall and now our first little babies have begun arriving. Picked up a Barred Rock (dark colored) and a Buff Orpington (yellow fluff ball) last Friday night from Seattle Farm Supply. They are now 5 days old and settling into their new home (brooder box).
We have 2 more baby chickens arriving at the beginning of March ~ a Rhode Island Red and a Speckled Sussex.
Even though I won a coop, Blaine and I have decided to build our own coop this spring. We have purchased plans for The Garden Coop and hope to get started by late March.
These little ones are fun to watch as their personalities are developing daily. Here's to the hope that all our baby chicks are HENS!
