Two-week-old chick Penguie Emppie sits on the knee of Violetta, 7, while other chicks roam about at a farmhouse in Fayette, Maine, on April 3, 2020. Photographer David Coventry bought 26 chicks before the pandemic, each of which was named and he says has a distinct personality. “In these tough times of COVID,” Coventry says, “we all got such great enjoyment watching the baby chicks grow up.”
