So when you see a photo of a baby chick and know nothing about it’s breed that doesn’t keep me from falling in love. This cute chick looks like she’s making her first adventure out of the henhouse. I remember my first time adventuring out on my own for the first time. I was 18.
It’s a right of passage to leave the family home and go out into the world not knowing if you have enough money, furniture or smarts to make it on your own. I had furniture but food mainly consisted of frozen peas cooked with a lot of butter. (I still love that.)
I managed money poorly and trusted others who I should not have trusted. I stumbled and got back up. I make dumb decisions that I learned from. My lack of understanding the adult world never physically harmed me or others. I am so thankful for that simple fact.
This baby chick doesn’t know where danger lurks and it will take a little luck and the other hens to keep her safe. I love her looks of determination. She’s going to be just fine.
Special thanks to “littlefarminthewoods” on Instagram for giving me permission to paint from their photo.
