We use a linearized Chiral Bag model to describe the strange octet and decuplet baryons. The approach is canonically extended to spontaneously broken chiral SU(3)L × SU(3)R, and the corresponding Goldstone Bosons are identified with the pseudoscalar meson octet. We include explicit symmetry breaking corrections both for baryons and mesons. The linearized quark-meson intraction is applied in a self-consistent calculation of the masses and, for Δ, Σ* and Ξ*, of the decay widths. Our special interest is in the influence of the K- and η-cloud (in addition to the π) on hyperon static properties. We show results for radii, masses, decay widths and renormalization constants as obtained by a fit to the experimental hyperon spectra. The effects of the K- and η-mesons are found to be non-negligible, although supressed by symmetry breaking effects. The effective gluon coupling α is reduced in comparison to the SU(2)L × SU(2)R case. In addition, we discuss the dependence on the bag constant B. It turns out that the lightest hyperon states, Λ and Σ are well described and stable for B1/4 < 130 MeV. The heavier strange baryons have stable solutions also for larger values of B. The bag radii determined at the minimal energies are R0≃1.15 fm for the octet and R0≃1.25 fm for the decuplet baryons.
