A Swan of a Chick

We had a chick named Camille that we bought at the Knox County Illinois Scenic Drive. In the human world this chick would be described as developmentally disabled.

Patrick1She was not active and seemed narcoleptic. She would just sit and pass out constantly and did not seem to know how to do the things chickens do. She was also small and a runt.

Patrick2We gave her away last year. The person who took care of her could not keep her any longer because she was actually a he and he started to crow constantly.

Patrick3We got him back.

Patrick4Now named Patrick, he is very active, feisty, and has incredible feathers.

Patrick8A complete transformation!

I am sorry that I do not have any “before” pictures to show!
