One of my favorite parts of Spring are the chicks.  A few years back we picked up a few chicks….and I loved hearing thier chirp chirps and watch them grow.  They are so sweet and are a hoot to watch!

Since we haved moved, we have no chicks.  No big chickens….but for now I can have little chicks hanging out.  They don’t chirp, but are just as cute!
