The Ugly Chickling

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Let me tell you guys the story about the Ugly Chickling.  My wife and I were doing some shopping online for our backyard flock.  We were trying to decide on what chicks we wanted and then adding them to the shopping cart. 


Amber asked " Babe, can we get a Blue Cochin? Please, please, please."   I took one look at those weird fluffy looking chickens and said, " Nooo way! Those things are ugly."  


We argued about it for the next 10 to 15 minutes when she finally gave up and we proceeded to checkout and place our order.  At the end of the ordering process the hatchery informs us we will be receiving one free specialty breed chick along with the others. My wife kept saying " Oh,  I hope it's a Blue Cochin."  I was hoping for anything else! 


Finally, the day comes. We get a phone call from the post office that our chicks are in!  All chicks accounted for, as well as a Blue Cochin!  But man did it make my wife's day! I was honestly happy we got it after seeing the smile on my wife's face.  I guess that's what I get for not getting my wife the chicken she wanted. 

 

 

All in all, I've grown to like the little chickling and enjoy staring at it in all it's fluffiness. I've got to say, it's now one of my favorites in the flock and we'll always have a Blue Cochin in our backyard!

Little cutie you've got there!
When I don't fit in and I don’t feel like I belong anywhere
When I don’t measure up to much in this life
Oh, I’m a treasure in the arms of Christ (forgiven ~ Sanctus real))

Adorable chick!

Happy wife, mother to 3 wonderful kids, 2 cats, 1 dog and 28 chickens...that were originally supposed to be 8. Not sure how that happened, but we love them all!
