    This is the story of the amazing chicken, a black australorp named Nugget!


    Please don't copy my story about Nugget!!!

    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 [​IMG]

    Nugget went to the VPBA Fall Show this past weekend! She won 1st in BA pullets and she won 1st in Novice Showmanship with me!!! YAY [​IMG]

    i love you Nugget!!!!

    About Nugget
    Nugget was bought from southern states this early spring, she and 5 other chicks were brought to our house and raised with love [​IMG].
    Our Australorp chicks were named Alice and Nugget. Nugget was an adorable chick and had a great personality [​IMG]
    She enjoys riding the bike, I know, people do stare at us when we are riding around [​IMG] Nugget layed her first egg at 20 weeks old!!!!

    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 [​IMG]

    Nugget is doing good after the show [​IMG] though she is being cooped up from the rest of the flock she is still doing well.....she loves to free range so it's difficult for her to be cooped up [​IMG]
    We treated her to a box of mealworms......my chickens love those treats [​IMG]
