I love how pipe cleaner chicks always look a bit freaked out.

    We got 6 chicks last month and I can attest that the real ones always look freaked out too!

    The third guy along looks particularly concerned! Perhaps he knows something that we don’t?

    the best…freaked out chickens make my night. Totally with you on that one. Looks a bit like my daughters hair in the am.

    That’s never occurred to me before, but you’re right, they do look absolutely horrified!

    Sloan Tannen did a book called “Bitter With Baggage Seeks Same” all with these freaked out looking chicks. It’s awesome.

    Those little guys were always my favorite thing about Easter. Where did you find ‘em? (I’m sure they’re not hard to find, but back in Spokane I could only ever find them at import stores…not sure why)

    Mara – Funny enough, I found these at Cost Plus World Market. I had trouble finding them last year and tracked them down at a party supply store, but these from Cost Plus were much nicer.

    Awesome. I haven’t even looked for anything Easter-related except chocolate eggs.

    I think they look anxious.
    Will they make it into some cuties’ basket, or will they be beat out those dang marshmallow PEEPS?!?!?!
