    Ok, yesterday I was making pics of my 2 Silver blue Ameraucana cockerals and just notice they right now resemble a dinosaur and not a chicken:

    This must be one of the ugliest phases when a chicken grows up- just imagen a tail and a few claws on the wings and tada : Archeaopteryx!

    Do you have any ugly phase chick pics? Or are mine the only ones who go through that stage??

    Awwww......little sweeties. [​IMG] Everybody goes through the same exact thing. I have heard it referred to as their "awkward phase" their "teenage phase", etc. I think it is cute. It gives that geeky little pimply teen feel. Still beautiful, just much easier for their mom to see than anyone else. LOL

    They are still a bit young for being teenagers, they were hatched March 24th.

    Call it what you want, teenage phase is just one thing I have heard the "ugly" stage called. My point was, it is just a normal phase of being a growing, developing, maturing, chickie. It will last for awhile then they will be gorgeous. [​IMG]

    When I first saw that I thought it was one chick with a head on each end! Then I scrolled on down and saw the feet.........That is a precious photo and they are teens! Cute:lau

    This is one of my Naked Necks. They are almost 6 weeks. I don't think they ever outgrow the ugly stage!

    Oh, looks like a male, would you say??
