It's Baby Chicks Day

You can have your Tiffany Blue boxes and the sparkling treasures within.

You can keep your scrumptious dinners with an excellent wine in a restaurant where someone else cooks and cleans up.

You can keep your tropical vacations to Hawaii when springtime is still way too cold at home.

I'd like all those things too.  But... these little peeps are what bring me real, true, deep-down happiness and joy. 

So here are the obligatory baby pictures from a doting chicken mama. (I currently have 430 chicken photos on my hard drive.  In my defense, that's only 33 photos per chick.  It could be worse.)


Seriously, what's cuter than a day-old peep running amock on your coffee table right before Easter?


Or an Oreo sandwich?  And check out that cute lil white chicken butt on the left.  So sweet!

I say do whatever brings you true happiness, no matter how crazy it might seem to anybody else. And if your dream also provides fresh eggs, consumes scrap veggies and provides excellent compost--all the better.

Where I Party On:


  1. And you've helped me smile once again :)

  2. Adorable ~ love the oreo sandwich! I really love your message about doing what brings you true happiness. We have two ducks that must have a nest near our house. I have been feeding bread to them ~ it took a while but now they will come right up to me ~ so fun!
