    everyone was right about the cornish chicks being ugly,the poor creatures are pathetic,feathers coming out here and there,pink skin showing through,,wing tips are looking good,I always have to explain to people thats the way they are,that chickens don,t get mange,,but ugly or not,,I can,t to get the first meal of my own home grown chicken,im sure it will be as good as everyone tells me,,four more weeks and time to process,,,mxpres

    JennsPeeps,

    Thats a gorgeous chick you've got there. I have one just like it, but a little paler, in the freezer right now.
