I photographed a couple of my girlfriends kids a couple of weeks ago and we attempted to get some pictures of the kids with baby chicks. It didn't go over so well.
Anna & Molly, both close to one year old, did not like the chickens and Mason, 5, and my Lily, 3, were fascinated, but kept wanting to pick the chicks up... by the neck.
Don't worry, no baby chicks were harmed. Maybe a little traumatized, but they survived.
