These are our three baby chicks that my girlfriend bought to see if we can try backyard chicken farming in our urban neighborhood of Portland, Oregon.

My girlfriend, Jess, name the chicks Beulah (black chicken), Sarafina (lightest one), and Lucille (the Redhead).

We kept them in a Tupperware tote with wood shavings and a red light to keep them warm (without being too bright for them to sleep).

UPDATE: We moved and had to place the original three chickens (don’t worry, they found a GREAT home in the country), and now we have 6 chickens who will be laying eggs in the coming weeks.
