Origami Easter Chick Folding Instructions

This origami easter chick is not only cute but it is guaranteed to be salmonella free! I started folding this origami easter chick with a 6 inch square paper. Then I thought it'd be cuter with a smaller piece of paper. So I folded one with a 3 inch paper. Before I knew it, I have a mother with 3 cute little chicks!
