Every Chick is Special


Some are beautiful.

Some are big, and some are little.

Some are contemplative.

And some are funny.

Some are not very nice to to the others and say, “I’ll get you, my pretty.”

And some say, “Kiss my bootie, little banty.”

The End.

    Who knew? Chicken puberty is not cute!

  6. Howdy says:

    WOW – they are growing up sooo fast… they have gone from eggs to peeps to chicks and soon they will be full blown chickens… well I don’t know if those terms are all correct but… it’ll work for now!

  7. Robin G. says:

    Wow, they’re growing up quick! When will you start getting eggs and/or chicken legs?

  8. Suzanne McMinn says:

    Just eggs! No chicken legs! I think they start laying around five months. So, four more months…

  17. anne says:

    Suzanne, Makes me wish we had chickens again !! Sooooooooooo
    cute !!!!!!!!!

  18. Jennifer Robin says:

    They just crack me up at this stage. The bodies of young adult chickens, the heads of chicks, and the attitudes of tweenagers! I love your not-very-nice one the best. Such a personality!

  19. margiesbooboo says:

    is that lucky in the first pic? is she going to be a red chicken?

    i’m sorry i couldn’t help it, i saw fried chicken too.


    ps. i’m glad you kept the ladder out for the cats.

  20. Suzanne McMinn says:

    Margie, no, that’s the little chick that I helped out of the egg. She does have some pretty reddish feathers! I’m looking forward to seeing what a pretty chicken she will be! Lucky is a pretty one, too–she has a mixture of black and white feathers on her back while this one has the red.

  21. Donna says:

    Ohhh, they are all so adorable..I love “the end” one the best…so precious. I could just squeeze a toot out of them all! So precious!

  22. ML says:

    Ha ha ha! That was hilarious! I can’t believe how fast they are growing, they look so different now. I really like the little banty and the red one.

  23. Brandy says:

    I like the one you say isn’t very nice. I think it’s quite pretty! *G* They are all so cute!

  24. Susan says:

    It sounds like you have one fun group of chicks! :shimmy:

  25. Estella says:

    They are growing sooo fast!

  26. Josie says:

    Dear Suzanne,
    Your blog was recommended by a friend of a friend of a friend. I have enjoyed reading it immensely for several months now. I have never posted a comment but feel I needed to today on behalf of the little chicken with the insane eyes. Sure he sends shivers down the other chick spines and gives humans the evil “eye”, but he can’t help looking like he does. Think of his forefather the “bald eagle”. Have you ever looked one of those in the eye? They may be our lands national symbol but golly they looked ticked off don’t they? Anyway…I beg you to give this little guy another chance. I bet all the other chicks are jealous of his eyes if truth be known. I just know this little guy is destine for greater things. 🙂

  27. Carolyn says:

    I still like the scary chick, but the others are in the running too. xxoo

  28. Shelley says:

    Every photo matches your caption perfectly! I just love your chickens and look forward to more stories about them – they would make great children’s books!! :chicken:

  29. catslady says:

    It must be my warped sense of humor but I love the chick with the evil eye the best as do a few others. You have a lovely variety!
