adolescent chicks

I had no idea how fast chickens grew up. Gone are their sweet, fluffy, round little bodies. They've been replaced by long-necked, awkward bodies with a motley assortment of plumage. Their feet seem too large for their bodies and they are so ungainly looking. If chickens could have acne, these guys would be ripe for a visit to the dermatologist. There feet are SO big and I swear that the makers of science fiction movies use them as models for alien appendages. I still love 'em. They're just....not very attractive right now. Is that wrong to say?

They really do look like teenagers, all gawky and awkward. It's pretty endearing, actually.
