    Meet Nugget my Beautiful and loving Black Australorp! She is the best chicken in the world!

    I got Nugget when she was just 3 days old and since then she has been a best friend! She enjoys riding the bike, picking blackberries, and just having fun! She loves ti get out and roam and loves people. Her docile personality makes her a great pet of mine. <3

    ~Nugget~

    Nugget was bought from southern states this early spring, she and 5 other chicks were brought to our house and raised with love .
    Our Australorp chicks were named Alice and Nugget. Nugget was an adorable chick and had a great personality

    She enjoys riding the bike, I know, people do stare at us when we are riding around


    Today was a great day because she showed in her very first chicken show! My little baby looked so beautiful at the show and she did amazing! She was champion in the english class and placed Res. Champion Large Fowl! I was so proud of her! She did better than I expected and I had no clue and hatchery bird could do that good in a show!

    Nugget is truely the best chicken ever! And she really enjoys people, really does, at the show some birds were skiddish and if you tried to pet them they would freak out and whenever you pet Nugget she just stood there as calm as ever. She loves kids and kids enjoy seeing and petting a pretty chicken like Nugget


    I love my Nugget and keep coming back for more on Nugget, the BEST CHICKEN IN THE WORLD!!!!!

    Nugget's Story

    Who knew that a little australorp pullet from Southern States could become the best chicken I’ve ever owned!
    March 14, 2011…. About a hundred or more chicks are settled in big tubs with food and water at our local Southern States Store. I walk in to take a look with my family and it was so tempting to buy. We already had 14 hens but wanted chicks so bad...we got six chicks free because we bought a bag of feed. We settled our chicks into their new home. We had two of each breed and they were all pullets, Golden laced Wyandotte, buff orpingtons, and my favorite, Black australorps. They were named Hokie, Morgan, Tinker Belle, Awesome , Alice, and Nugget. I fell in love with Nugget as soon as I saw her. She was the cutest thing ever! I played with Nugget everyday and she soon became calm and loving…….and thinking I was her ‘mom’!
    Chick days were pleasant and sweet. The chicks were so sleepy the first days of life. They would stand under the heat lamp and slowly fall down head first into a sweet little nap. I talked about Nugget all the time, most people didn’t care about what I said but to me she was my life! I spent endless times with Nugget, but it all went by so quick. I cared for my chicks everyday and spent the most of my free time with Nugget. She was a dream come true.
    I loved hearing the sweet little peeping and chirping the chicks made. Their warm bodies and there need to be close to you warmed my heart. And most of the time I wonder, “what would I do without my chickens?”……..I don’t even want to know! After about two-weeks the chicks had a growth spurt and their size went up and they began growing feathers here and there. I have now decreased the temperature by 10°F. Nugget is coming along well. She is the calmest of all our chicks and I had to show favoritism towards her. She would climb up my chest and snuggle on my shoulder. Peeping to keep in touch with me. She grew up fast, and at about 8 weeks I took her on her first bike ride! She loves riding and rides with me almost every time I ride! She is becoming a best friend! Nugget and I go picking blackberries every now and then, boy I’ve never seen a chicken love blackberries that much(actually I don’t think I’ve even seen one eat a blackberry)! To tell you the truth, I think she likes blackberries more than I do!
    I’ve decided to show Nugget at the State Fair Poultry Show! I ordered leg bands and they fit her well...they are blue and she is number 100! I can’t wait until the show! Nugget is about 7 months old now and is laying pretty, little, brown eggs! Nugget is a beautiful black australorp, and I couldn’t ask for one any better! She’s the best chicken ever! Nugget won Res. Champion Large Fowl, Champion English Class, and Best Australorp....she is also going to another show in a few weeks


    i love you Nugget!!!!

    ________________

    Nugget's show career has ended. I don't want to take the risk of her getting sick again. She has won Champion before, but no matter what she will always be the Champion in my heart. Through thick and thin, through good and bad time, forever. Though she isn't going to anymore shows, I have another thing in mind for her........

    Nugget is going to represent the chicken world, she will go with me places to teach people what chickens really are, they aren't just your Happy Meal or egg laying machines, they are much more. She may even do poultry showing demostrations. They are true friends, good pets, and a joy to raise. They don't just poop and lay eggs, they are more important than that. Just think, if chickens never exsisted, neither would the wonderful chicken raising hobby, or the business, or would the many foods baked with eggs and chickens, or would the delight of hatching eggs. Chickens are important in this world, and I want to show everyone that. Just because Nugget won't be coming home with ribbons anymore doesn't mean she isn't special, she will always be special, she is a different hen, a special hen.






    Thanks for Reading About Nugget!
