Meet Skunky.

Not to be confused with a skunk.

Skunky we like.

Skunks we do not like.

Clearly Curly had her adopted babies.  Or at least some of them.  Sunday night we saw five baby chicks!  The Husband says some of the other eggs could still hatch.  And honestly, there could have been more babes hidden under Curly.  She wasn’t exactly overjoyed to introduce them to us.  So we wait.

Some of us more patiently than others.

That’s right, The Husband is beyond excited for his new babies!

Husband Happy RW

But you don’t want to see pictures of him (sorry Honey.)

Or his fabulous chicken boots.

You want to see pictures of the chicks!  Or at least the one chick we managed to get decent photographs of before Curly told us off.

Question of the Day:  Can you believe that fluffy thing came out of a tiny little egg?  Crazy.  Anyway, the question of the day is HOW MANY BABY CHICKS DO YOU WANT???  I want a billion.  



  1. That chick is pretty stinking cute. Do Mike’s babies keep him up all night? Want to be fed every 3 hours? Are they very particular about their swaddle?

  2. Cute! But what happens to Skunky if it turns out to be a he? Cute little Skunky for dinner? 🙂

  3. Such a cutie!! And good lens choice! =)

  4. Didn’t know those boots could look any better.. until I saw them paired with shorts.

  5. I love Skunky. I love Skunky almost as much as your husband’s comment above.

  6. These are some seriously cute pictures!!! Now everyone will want baby chicks at their house. 🙂
