I'm so excited that I just have to shout it from the rooftops that "TOMORROW IS BABY CHICK DAY!!!" I've done a lot of research and decided that Buff Orpington Chickens would be a great breed for our needs...super mellow, good egg layers, don't mind small spaces, don't fly...perfect. So, tomorrow the baby chicks arrive just-hatched at the co-op and I'll run over first thing to pick up a few of them. The Great Backyard Chicken Project is about to begin! .
This is what they will look like when they are grown...I'll post pics of my own little chicks after I have them moved into their box in the laundry room tomorrow.
