Wittle Baby Chicks!

 

My friend Brandi just finished with some photo sessions involving baby chicks.

It reminded me of when we were little and my Daddy brought us home some baby chicks. 

Not this kind... .

but this kind.....

It was awesome!  They were so so cute!  I can remember looking into the cage and picking mine out.  I really don't even remember what color I picked out.  I just remember the fascination and wonder of looking at those colored little chicks!

We watched them grow into gangly little "teenage" chicks, and by then they were getting a little too big for their cage.

One day I came home and noticed my chickens were gone!

"Daddy what happened to my chickens??"

I don't think he ever answered me....

Later that night we sat down to eat supper. 

We were having chicken and dumplins.

Coincidence?  I think not!

I don't know what would shock me more... the colored chicks or the thought of eating a pet chick.

Cute post, Valarie!

Blessings!

Similar childhood memory, make it a squirrel and squirrel dumplins.

What is up with pet eaters?

GASP!

but how was the chicken and dumplings? ;)

Simply_Pam said...

I remember the color chick ! I think that they stopped doing that. Something about it being bad for them...now that I think about it..we also ate chicken and dumplings soon afterwards !

Thank goodness I'm a vegetarian. I can't be eating nobody's rainbow-dyed Easter chick. Ack!

Nooow Valarie Lea

I think the little chicks died when they were little. Colored chicks never lasted very long.

And do you really think that I would have the heart to cook pet chickens? I think not.

Oh my gosh...those little rainbow chicks are just too cute! Sorry you had to eat yours.

Oh, BTW...do tell where you found the Mini Edward? I would die for one. And my best friend's 40th birthday is next week and she is COMPLETELY over the top obsessed with E. Share the love!
