This little guy hatches without a nest. His feet are ready to perch, seconds after hatching! That is some impressive work, Tern!

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!

After seeing this gif, I now officially refuse to do any workout regime that doesn't include at least one ten-minute stretch of power waddling. I can learn to be like a penguin, I just know it!

Why on earth would you even want to wander from the nest anyway, when the nest contains so much security and squeeness like this particular one does?
