Fluffy Chicks at the Farm

We have a new flock of fluffy little chicks here at my Bedford, New York farm.

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. Last week, 14-rare breed chicks hatched right here at Cantitoe Corners - they were incubated in my own kitchen. These baby chickens will all start laying eggs in about four or five months, but for now, they’re nothing less than absolutely adorable.

Enjoy these photos.
