Top 10 Baby Chicks in Hats
Over all these animal themed posts I have written we’ve seen that often a small hat can make even the scariest of animal look cute (see my post: Snakes in Hats.) But what happens when you put a little cute hat on an animal that is already cute? Does the world implode and life as we know it end? Well no. But we do get some super cute images…

BONUS CONTENT: Top 10 Facts About Chickens
10 – “Move along now everyone,nothing to see here.”
FACT: Chickens are not the only ones who have a great memory, as they can distinguish between more than 100 faces of their own species! In fact it is firmly believed that while all baby chicks might look the same, the mummy chicken knows each of them by facial features alone and can tell whose chicks are whose.
9 – “Three days of sun isnae enough to convince me to take ma hat aff.”
FACT: Have you ever heard of “pecking orders?” Well it really does relate to a chickens complex social structures and every chicken knows his or her place on the social ladder. I think we all know our own pecking orders off by heart.
8 – “I’m the archbishop or Chickenburry.”
FACT: Chickens are one of very few species of birds to have full-colour vision. Most birds and a lot of other animals have some form of colour blindness, but when it comes to sight the chicken is king.
7 – “I know a Tiara is technically not a hat, but I’m Princess and I say it is.”
FACT: If there is one thing strange that chickens love it is nothing more that a spot of sunbathing! So if you see a chicken on a hot summers day tipped over on their backs, they are in fact quite happy and not dead or going mad at all.
6 – “I know we are a little young to get married, but it was love at first egg!”
FACT: Chickens are one of only hundred or so species that experience rapid eye movement (REM) sleep! In fact much like us humans they need this sleep to live a healthy life.
5 –”Us posh chicks have to always look our best”
FACT: Chickens sadly for them have pain receptors that give them the ability to feel pain and distress. Which makes it even more important to make sure you get your eggs and meat from a ethical farm rather than a battery hen farm.
4 – “Blues Brothers? Do they live down the road, cuz I’ve never heard of em.”
FACT: Hens will not only defend their young from predators, but they are willing to give up their lives for them. Goes to show just how loving a chicken can be.
3 – “I’m the original Easter Chick”
FACT: It is thought that most chicken breeds are great communicators with chickens having more than 30 types of vocalizations (words) to choose from. Not so much bird brain at all!
2 – “Easter time is my favourite time.”
FACT: Chickens are more like human mother hens than you might think, as they will often talk to their babies in the egg even before they even hatch. And further studies have shown that when chicks are born the already know 5-10 of the mothers calls (words) instantly.
1 – “Straw hats are the way to go my boy. Their the future!”
FACT: It was once a tradition to really give someone a Easter chick! None of this fake ball of fluff with a orange fluff beak, a real chick!
