Weekly Photo Challenge: Renewal

Weekly Photo Challenge: Renewal

During the process of renewal things often gets worse before they get better.

To demonstrate this effect I give you..

Drum roll please!

…a molting chicken!

Earlier in the week she looked awful, today she looks ridiculous and by next week her molt will be complete, her feathers will be renewed and she will be back to normal.

I have included a picture of one of her flock mates below so that:

A) In case you aren’t familiar with chickens you can see what she is supposed to look like (yes they have tails, wing feathers, no bald spots and a general fluffy bottomed look that the above chicken is missing) and that

B) PETA won’t try to come confiscate my animals because they think I’m abusing them.

She’s just molting, it’s a renewal thing.

  1. Hi there! Yes, doesn’t she look ridiculous! All mine have been the same, some much worse than others, and our cockerel, Wellington KNEW how ludicrous he looked without his magnificent tail – he went into hiding! They are all back to normal now, looking very svelte and a point, which is just as well as it has suddenly turned quite cold!

    Love your little girl minus tooth! Goodness, that brings back lots of memories of my two boys.

    By the way, I’m having a wonderful giveaway on my blog at the moment, so do pop over. All you have to do is leave a comment to be in with a chance of winning!
    Hope to see you!
