Polish chicks

The farmer Lenny stopped his mower to tell us that there's something new in the incubator: brand new Polish chicks.

I have seen full grown Polish chickens before at the county fair. They've got the big bouffant crown and the v-shaped comb, making them look like rock stars. The chick versions have just a fuzzy blob up top, like a cotton ball stuck on top of their heads.

We had a few chickens while I was growing up. I miss the baby chicks and the whole raising pet chickens thing.

As amusing as the adults are, the chicks are just adorable.
