Which Baby Animal Is More Cute?



Spring has hit hard. There are so many baby animals running around my house. Out on the deck are the bunnies. The mama rabbit finally let me stick my arm in the box to get a head count: 9 babies! There are two solid browns, two solid whites, and five brown and whites. They’re just now starting to eat real food. Then, walk in the living room where you’ll find…40 baby chickies! The came from Murray McMurray. I’m taking care of them until they’re ready to go to their new homes in West Oakland. My friend Willow of City Slicker Farms runs a backyard garden project that provides raised garden beds and three chickens to families who want to do some urban farming. The chicks are Rhode Island Reds, Aracaunas, Buff Orpingtons, and Barred Rocks. Go chickens. Next week, prepare yourself for another cute baby animal post when the ducklings, goslings, and turkey poults arrive.

  1. Hey, just found your blog. I live in Portland, got chickens and raised beds. How big is your plot? You gonna eat them piggies?

  2. wow, how fuzzy and cute at your house!

  3. Bunnies are more cute but far more dangerous than chickies. What with the razor sharp claws and gnashing teeth and what-not. Chickies have no teeth.
