    My brother in law came over to the house and thank goodness I wasn't there because if I was I probably would have lit into him. But my husband (who brother this is) said he dropped by and saw my nearly feathered chicks.... AND HE SAID THE BROWN ONE WAS UGLY!!!! [​IMG][​IMG]

    Here are some pics of Henrietta the yellow buff orp and Lily the brown Americana. Lily is the one he said was ugly. I was shocked and appalled by this. For one, I think they are a cute as ever and I know they will grow up to be very pretty ladies. How DARE he!!! [​IMG]


    How could anyone call these cute babies UGLY!!!

    However on a nicer note, I'm finishing my coop tomorrow and my new babies will be moved out there within the week. [​IMG]

    Well Hummmph! Chicken poo on your BIL! I think she's cute! My EE was the scruffiest looking of my chicks when she was just feathering and she's the prettiest now (Shhhh! Don't tell the other two I said that!). He's gonna be eating his words for that comment and if you're smart, he'll eat his words and not Lily's eggs!

    JERK! [​IMG] he must be blind. Your ladies ARE beautiful. ESPECIALLY Lily!

    Some people just don't get it! My sister told me my dog (a choc lab) was ugly. Ok, now SOME labs have big, blocky bodies, and I've always found them uh.. somewhat unattractive myself. But Annie is slim with beautiful, expressive eyes and a super-shiny coat. Nothing ugly about her. Or maybe my sister used the expression 'weird looking'. LOL!

    Never mind BIL. As Backyard Buddies said, No eggs for him!!

    Maybe he should go back and look at a picture of himself when he was a gawky teenager!

    I think all chicks go through a gawky ugly stage. Even my silkies do. [​IMG]

    Then again, I'm one of those that doesn't think all newborn babies are cute, too. [​IMG]

    Glad you weren't there..he never would've made it out alive...
    He obviously doesn't know cute if it hit him in the face.

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I think Naked Necks are cute so go figure.
