I had another post planned for today, but that all went out the window when I finally got the call I’ve been waiting for….my baby chicks have arrived!  I’m getting 4 Buff Rocks from a guy that put in a large order from a hatchery, all females this time!

Expect a post tomorrow about the new arrivals and their totally DIY chick brooder!

  1. I’m warming my hubby up to the idea of having chickens in the city in our backyard… I’m curious to hear how it all goes! May I ask why Buff Rocks? Will they be large hens?

      I picked Buff Rocks because they are supposed to be friendly and docile, and I have a small child. If you want to convince your husband, it’s really more like having pets than livestock, so just sell it that way!
