Baby Chicks in Black and White

Baby Chicks in Black and White

photos of baby chicks

These Holbrook Farm chicks were less than a day old when I saw them yesterday– some of them were so new they were still wet. They tumble and step all over each other, and almost smother each other, snuggling in close together. 

It was really a challenge taking photos of them partly because the heat lamp was so yellow as to make color photography impossible, but also they were moving so much, obstructing my view with each other. Anyway in this post, you can still see how fluffy, wonderful, and fun they are. I might return next week to try to photograph them again.

Which ones of these are roosters? Which ones will lay the eggs that we will eat? By next week it will be clear who is who, they grow that fast. There was a difference in size just in hatching a few hours earlier, which I find amazing.

I work to amplify good wherever I find it. I love color, texture, beauty, great ideas, nature, metaphor, deliciousness, genuine spirituality, and exploring new territory. I encourage authenticity, nurture creativity, champion sustainability, promote peace, and hope to foster a new renaissance where we all are free to be our most fulfilled, multifaceted, and terrific selves.
