Seriously, why did biologists/linguists/etc. ever think "fowl" was a fair term for all kinds of squee bird friends? It's a word that sounds far too close to another word that does not describe them in any way at all!

Squee lovers, the winners of this week's Squee Spree contest are itty bitty peafowl babies! And this squee little peachick proves a long-held suspicion of mine to be perfectly true: Even without the fully-fledged plumage they develop later in life, baby peacocks still know how to strut!

Cowgirljules says: "The big one is a chicken, and was hatched two days ago. The small one is a quail who was hatched today."

Never have I considered a baby chicken to be a "big" squee animal... but comparatively speaking here, this chick really is gigantic compared to its quail counterpart!

Chicks are cute. I don't think anyone's denying that.

... but literally just-hatched chicks? I'd definitely contend that they make perfect Creepicute contestants. What are your thoughts, squee lovers?

Why yes, I do know how to pronounce the word "indubitably." Were you expecting a chick wearing a top hat to lack any sort of linguistic sophistication? Clearly you've not spent nearly enough time around chicks wearing top hats, my good sir. Now if you excuse me, I must make haste to this afternoon's tea time with my cousin Richard. Have a jolly day, chap!
