Meet the chicks!

It’s been a lively first week at Ben and my new place in South Minneapolis, what with moving in, a semi-raucous potluck/housewarming party, starting the garden, and new creatures!


Meet Silver, Buff, and Bar, our squirmy delightful cheeping chicks.  They are a Silver Laced Wyandotte, Buff Orpington, and Barred Rock respectively.

Their recycling bin home looks like something from a sci-fi movie.


They’ll stay inside with us for 6-8 weeks, and then hopefully will make nice with our inherited chickens that live in the backyard and lay us delicious eggs daily.

Thanks to City Girl Farming for the tips and resources, and general enthusiasm for raising animals in the city.

    1. I’m not too far off- you take light rail to the 38th Street exit, and then there’s probably a bus over to my place at 5th Ave. It’s maybe walkable too if you’re feeling ambitious 🙂
