I have always thought there were really NO ugly chickens. I think they are all beautiful. I love Turkens and even Showgirls have grown on me. Well, my son just HAD to have Silkies. After months of failed hatches, dying babies, etc. we finally ended up with 3. One white and 2 self blue. I heard there were some feathering issues with the self blue silkies but hey.....how bad could it be? Right???? I'll show you. This is my male. I love him. Really I do. But this guy is UGLY!!! Pardon the extremely pathetic quality cell phone pics....even they are good enough to show this baby's ugly, though. Oh, he is about 15 weeks old.
