I now pronounce you chick and chickadee.

Little girls everywhere: Put down your Barbies and start dressing up chicks instead! We just couldn't resist bringing you these pictures of tiny little chicks wearing adorable hats, taken by Julie Parsons from Norridgewock, Maine.

Julie started taking photos after her 7-year-old daughter dressed up the little birdies in hats and outfits that were simply impossible not to capture on film. It must have been no easy task to get them to stay still with all that fun headgear!
