Chicks Arrive at My Bedford Farm

We have a new flock of fluffy little chicks here at the farm.

As you know, I’ve been raising chickens for many years. Not only do I love keeping them for their fresh, delicious eggs, but I also appreciate their company and their beauty.

As part of good animal husbandry practices, and in order to maintain strong egg laying production, it’s important to regenerate the chicken population from time to time. Over the last couple of weeks, I received two batches of chicks from Traci Torres, the founder of My Pet Chicken. In total, I have 53-rare breed chicks to add to my flock. One group is about three-weeks old, and the other just over a week old, but they will all start laying eggs in about four or five months. For now, they’re nothing less than absolutely adorable. Enjoy these photos.
