orpington farm

Much excite!

I finally ordered some chicks today but they won’t be ready until around mid-May. I had to get a 15-chick minimum order but out of those what I plan on keeping are some Blue-Laced Red Wyandottes, Buff polish, Golden-laced polish, and a buff orpington. The Red Wynadottes are straight run so I hope I get some girls, although the roosters are VERY cool-looking, I can’t have roosters where I live. Plus I don’t have a big enough yard to keep all the offspring I’d want to keep lol.

Also, there is a local breeder that is going to have some Speckled Sussex in April in very limited quantity so I hope I’m able to get a couple of those.

My lovely ladies are molting so I am up to my eyeballs in their feathers right now. 

I have hundreds of them in all shapes and sizes currently available here in my Etsy shop. They are great for costumes, jewelry, fly-tying, and all manner of other crafts. They’ve been washed too so they are nice and clean and ready for whatever project you have in mind! 

When you buy them just imagine yourself handing the girls some tasty treats like mealworms or grapes because the money goes right back to their care and upkeep. You’ll be their new best friend! :)
