All fluffed up and chirping away these day old chicks came into the world just in time for Easter.
The tiny creatures, which weigh in at just grams each, are part of a batch of more than 200 birds hatched at the North Pickenham home of poultry dealer Fabian Eagle late on Wednesday night.
Among the clutch are Silkies, Leghorns, Wyandottes and Cream Legbars, the latter of which the Eagle family poultry business has been famous for for generations.
And it seems Mr Eagle's son Maxwell, who will celebrate his second birthday in the coming weeks, is already preparing to follow in his fathers footsteps.

But while it will be more than two decades before Maxwell is ready to take over the running of the family firm the newly born chicks will grow up somewhat faster.
