Baby chicks hall of fame: share your stories and photos here!

Congratulations - you have new chicks!

The baby chick Hall of Fame! Pin for later.

Did you incubate them yourself, or buy from a hatchery or store?

Maybe you're a teacher who's gone through the exciting incubation and hatch process with your pupils. How did that go?

Getting new chicks, whether you did it yourself, have a hen who does it for you, or you bought from a breeder or hatchery, can be a stressful process. Each stage is filled with anxiety of one sort or another.

So you should be very proud of yourself if you managed to hatch some baby chicks of your own.

I'd love to hear about them - and of course to see some photos.

Here's your chance to tell the world how it went, to tell how you overcame any problems you might have had, and to have your chicks entered in the "Raising Happy Chickens Hall of Fame" photo gallery!

This section of my website is dedicated to our chicks. A place where everyone can share their stories and photos. And where we can all cluck over them, and marvel at the cuteness of those tiny fluff-balls.

It's always fun to see photos of new baby chicks, and to hear stories about how they came to be with you. It's really easy to do, so what are you waiting for? I'm looking forward to hearing all about them!

Chicks should be no more than 8 weeks old. Any submission which has more than 500 words will have its own dedicated page! Under 500 words, your baby chick will share a page with other cutesies.

Share Your Story and Photos Here!

Are you proud of your chicks? Do you think they're just the cutest in the world? Whether you hatched them yourself or have a hen to do the work for you, the world wants to hear about and see them!
