the best place to pick up chicks
Meet Lucy and Ethel. Our newest peeps.
We took a trip to the Urban Farm Store this week. I didn’t expect to bring anything home. Well, maybe a bag of pine shavings, we needed some of those. Maybe some chicken food for our laying hens, we’re running low on that. But, they had barred rock chicks! Only five left! These weren’t really an impulse buy. I even brought a small brooder along just in case. I think these will be a nice addition to our flock. Hopefully, they’ll provide us with many delicious breakfasts in the future.
If you’re in the Portland area, the Urban Farm Store on SE Belmont is a great chicken resource. They’re very knowledgeable about all things chicken. And it’s a good place to pick up chicks.
