| How About a Baker's Dozen? (Video) »
As I was downloading these photos, all I could think of was how nicely camouflaged the babies are in their environment.
And you can't tell me this fluffy little baby chicken's bum isn't cute!
The stripes really help break up the outline of the chick's body, making her blend into her surroundings even better!
Even the coloring on her little wing feathers helps her blend in. The barring of color on the feathers really looks like the color variations of the ground.
I imagine being camouflaged with your surroundings helps when hunting bugs, too!
Even John's Chicken has some nice camouflage attire with the variation of color in her feathers.
More bug hunting demonstrations took place...
...as it would seem that some paid better attention than others.
And, some even less.
Thankfully, it's OK to ask questions and offer advice.
And working with a buddy is strongly encouraged.
But it's always nice to have someone do the "cooking" for you.

They are so precious! I just want to hold one in my palm and pet its soft fluff. Love your commentary!

Can't get much cuter than that! They are so sweet, and I love your comments. The last one is darling, looks like she is checking in with Mama.

I second the post above, and think I have prodded you about this before....we NEED some Anna Wight photo books for children! You are not only an amazing photographer but so clever with your captions (but I'll take an illustrated one too if I must!) I would love to see some of your pictures with captions by your Dad, too, hee!

Gosh, you can almost feel how soft they are, just by looking at the photos. Your entries and photos always make me smile, Anna and for that, I am grateful.

I just love John's chicken and her chicks! They are sooooo adorable! It IS amazing how they blend in with their environment, isn't it?! Your photos tell it all! LOVED the commentary, you are such a great writer as well as photographer, crafter of ALL things, and Momma to many! An amazing woman, you are!
Thanks for making my days so bright. It's such a joy to read about your life on the farm. What a blessing you are to all of us!!! :D

Hi Anna, what lovely new babies you have... nature a facinating thing. I know you love your chook's, today to my horror I caught my next door neighbour's puppy chasing my sweet girls. Thankfully the pup is only young, so young she didn't do any damage and all was well, just a few feathers missing and four very frightened chickens hiding in the bush waiting for me to reasure them. Thanks for your blog, its a total breath of fresh air...good for the soul and I look forward to every new post. From Bec Bowers in New Zealand.

I see the last one has been reunited with her family! Gosh, Anna, I love your photos! Yes, the chicks are hard to see against the ground - that must keep them safe from predators (hawks?) I laughed out loud at your comments about the one looking around, the ones sleeping, then getting it directly from Momma! Just precious!
