That poor chicken! He must be so embarrassed! Just look at it, all naked and cold! Doesn't look cuddly like mine, thats for sure. :( One of the first things I thought was sunburn and mosquitos! OUCH! WHat is wrong with people? Why do they take something beautiful and try and make it "better"?

Thanks for sharing the article though, my nievity proceeds me sometimes. SOmetimes I think we humans are too smart for our own good! Sure is a weird looking chicken!

Kelly,

Your correct about the sunburn, bug bites and there's a reason they have colorful feathers.

So they can attract a mate. This poor guy doesn't stand a chance.

Thanks for sharing the picture and article. I have raised comercial breed egg chickens for my own use as well as exotic breeds for 4-H kids for some time. Anyone that raises chickens knows that they will be disease ridden just from the canibalism that they inflict on themselves! Why must we constantly try to play God???

Between rebuilding the fence at the Frog Farm, and teaching touch and go landings for my hogs, this project fell behind....;^)

My mama was as much a chicken lady as KellyGa is! When we were kids, we had big flocks of chickens and a herd of cows.. that was all that set us apart from the poorest in the county! LOL. Eventually, we moved to town and she had to give up animals and chickens.... for a while.

When the urge got to be too much to bear, she had daddy build her a little chicken house that looked like a kid's play house, and a privacy fence around it. This was to hide the fact that she had chickens in town, I reckon, tho I seriously doubt that anyone cared. She didn't get her chickens locally, but ordered them from a hatchery (was it MacMurrays? Something like that.) The biddies came and of course everyone in town knew about them.. they just didn't let her know they knew!

Now, she was a happy lady, tending the wee flock and talking to the chickens and having them talk back. (She said that this was so, and my mama was a truthful lady!) As usual, there was a rooster or two in the batch, and by and by, they commenced to practice the morning yodel! Mama would run out and scold those young roosters, and tell them they would wind up on the table if they didn't behave!

Mama never did break the roosters from crowing, and we never heard a complaint from the neighbors.. come to think of it, they were mostly farm families moved to town, and the crowing may well have sounded like Slim Whitman singing, "Wayward Wind"!

KellyGa, we love your chic-pics, and tales from the back yard! Keep 'em comin'! Today, you gave me some good memories of my mama, and believe you me, she would have understood the chicken table and would probably shout 'Bravo'!!!!

Nice story, JB..

JB, that was a VERY good story! Very well written! I was submersed in it, thanks for sharing a childhood moment with us, and I sure hope your Mamas kindred spirit can look down and see me carrying on with my chickens and hope it brings her joy. :)

My Mother also ordered from McMurrays.

We had meat and egg laying chickens but the ones I remember most were the fancy show chickens. Yokohamas with their 8-12 foot tail feathers, Silikies with their hairy feathers all the way down to their toes, Polish Top Knots with their fancy head ware. Not to mention the Pea foul, Guienies,ducks, geese and other exotic foul.

But the best of all is that childhood memory of watching a chick hatch out of an egg.

Well....    Posted 08-21-2004 at 17:50:27       [Reply]  [No Email]
I must add the facination I had trying to figure out exactly where the eggs came from.

Turn any child loose in a farm environment with a variety of domestic and wild animals, then you step back, get down on your knees, look under the tail feathers of a hen trying to lay an egg and see life through their eyes.

It gives a totally new perspective to life.
