I was out taking pictures of our very fast growing chicks and there is one that definitely stands out from the crowd…
This is our free exotic chick that came with our McMurray Hatchery order. I believe it is a White Crested Black Polish. It isn’t a breed that I would have ordered, but the little guy is entertaining.
It can be scary to stand out in a crowd. It takes courage to be yourself, but it can be so freeing. If you refuse to be yourself, you cheat the world of who and what you are. Some may not accept who you are and some may criticize, but does that really matter?
“Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind.” Dr. Seuss
“Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.” Dr. Seuss
“You were born an original. Don’t be a copy.” John Mason
Take a lesson from this little chick and embrace who you are and run with it!
I think i need a hair do like that, haha!!! Your little bird really stands out, I really love different!! It can say a lot about you, with out saying a word.
Cute post Shannon – very appropriate for that little guy and for life too! 😀
Well said! And I love your little polish chick! I want one now! p.s. Thanks for dropping by the blog!
Thanks for stopping by! I always wondered why people would buy the polish chickens, but I have to admit that the little guy is growing on me 🙂
I gotta admit that I’m not that excited about Polish chickens, but one Polish chick in a crowd is quite outstanding. The pictures make me laugh. and I can see getting a big smile every time I saw the flock in person.
Yeah, it does bring a smile to my face!
What a well put together post! I love it! ….professional pics (or are you professional? 🙂

Some of those crested ones can be very sweet. Unfortunately, they tend to get their topknots pulled out by other chickens.
