Regular Instagrammer and devoted mum Ashley Weeks Cart had a flood of comments to her Instagram account recently, when she posted some absolutely adorable photos of her children with her newborn chicks.

Ashley explains that her daughter Sunny was the mastermind behind the Instagram sensation:

'She began asking me to take the pictures of the chicks. She said, 'Mama, show the chicks to other people, because the chicks make me smile, I bet that they'll make other people smile, too. And that's pretty happy.'

Here are the insanely cute photos that have taken Instagram by storm:
