Welcome to The Farmhouse Friday Link Party!
Hey guys! How was your week?
I have some egg-citing news! We’re getting chicks from Cackle Hatchery next week!!!
My hubby and I have had chickens for years so this isn’t a totally new experience for us, but it’s always exciting for us when we get a new batch of chicks!
I’m especially excited because the chicks we’re getting are a fairly new breed called Bielefelders. We’ve never had this breed before so I can’t say anything about them from personal experience, but going by the description from Cackle Hatchery they sound like the perfect breed for us, not to mention they are gorgeous!
From Cackle Hatchery:
The Bielefelder (Bie-le-fel-der) chicken is a German rare breed of domestic chickens. It was created by Gerd Roth in the 1970’s using Amrocks (Barred Rocks), Malines, Rhode Island Reds and New Hampshire. It has gained the term the “Uber Chicken” due to it’s many desirable characteristics such as being a dual purpose bird and a auto-sexing breed. Male and female chicks look different directly after hatching which makes sexing the birds extremely easy. A very prolific layer on large to extra large eggs. They have a very docile disposition and easy to tame and kid-friendly.
We’re scheduled to receive our chicks next Thursday (which happens to be Valentine’s Day!) and I can’t wait! And I’ll be sure to share all the chicky fun with plenty of pictures and videos!
This Week’s Features:
We got a ton of budget-friendly farmhouse decor ideas, so I made it this week’s theme!
