Thirteen Chicks

We're up to thirteen chicks now. Three of them are Welsummer and Buff Orpington mixes and right now, have buff bodies and dark stripes on their wings. Very cute! This one was born last week.

Makin' Bacon

Brined for two weeks and smoked over apple wood. 


We had six chicks hatch last week. Mama Buffy is taking excellent care of them. 

This is the first one that hatched. It looks like we have Buff Orpington chicks as well as at least one hybrid. That one has dark stripes on its head and back.
