Just Hatched {Chick Photoshoot}

Hello, dears!

So we have this incubator for hatching eggs, and the 22 eggs from our chickens just hatched! Well, several of them, anyway. Some chicks are probably hatching while I type. πŸ™‚ Of course I had to take pictures of their adorable fluffiness, so prepare yourselves for a mini cuteness overload!

SO TINY! Thus far we’ve only seen two different kinds of chicks. They’re both “mixed breeds” if you want to call it that, and they’re both awfully cute. This is the first kind…

chick 2

You can’t tell much from this picture, but the first kind (we mostly have these) are darker, with brown stripes and light stomachs.

And here’s the second kind! This one looks more like a classic chick, wouldn’t you say? HELP IT’S SO FLUFFY.

chick 3

As you can see, they don’t come out that way, contrary to cartoons and movies. XD This is one of the dark ones that just hatched…

chick 18

And here’s a bedraggled light one. You can see a tiny chip in the egg to its right – that means another chick is hatching! Once they peck a big enough hole to breathe, it can take hours of resting before they finish the job and struggle out of the shell completely.

We have them in a box in an old rabbit cage! The red light here comes from a heat lamp we hung up in the corner to keep them warm.

My little sister Carmen assisted me with some cute pictures, featuring a wooden bowl and some adventurous chicks. πŸ™‚

chick 8

AHHH IT’S A BOWL OF CUTENESS.

chick 7

Heh, that little chick must be camera shy – it’s trying to hide under the other one. XD

chick 4

These guys can peep surprisingly loud for such small bits of fluff that they are!

chick 9

Heh heh.

chick 10

BAHAHA, this one makes me smile. :’D

chick 11

Look how bright orange their feet are!

chick 12

We’ll end with this little guy. You can already see a tiny pink comb starting to grow!

chick 15

AWW. Are you melting yet? XD I don’t blame you – they’re even more adorable and fluffy in person! I’ll have to take plenty of pictures while they’re little before they grow up to be awkward-looking hens and roosters. πŸ˜›

Which photo was your favorite? Have you ever seen chicks hatch? Would you like to see more chick photoshoots in the future?

Thanks so much for reading, dears, and have a lovely day!
