    This is Charlie my 4/5 week old Chocolate Orpington bantam. He is the sweetest little thing, so inquisitive [​IMG] But he's so ugly bless him, lol.
    He has the weirdest feathering going on with bald patches all over and the longest neck I've ever seen on a chick unfortunately he wouldn't stretch for the camera.
    he had 2 siblings but they live with a friend, I've seen them recently and they look lovely and elegant not like their brother at all.
    I'll let you judge for yourselves

    Ah, I know you don't really want that ugly thing,

    Why don't you pack him in a box and fly him over the pond.... I'll take him.

    Remember the story of the ugly duckling....he may be the best chicken in the world when he fully feathers out

    Don't worry - they all go through the ugly stage at some point. He'll grow into everyything, just you wait and see. [​IMG]
