A “Skunk” in the Chickenyard


It’s not the disaster it sounds like. The “skunk” in question is one of the new chicks. It’s striped like a skunk. I’m tempted to call it Skunky, however, as its feathers come in, the stripes will disappear. The colors and patterns on baby chicks often change dramatically as they grow up.

The black stripe streaking out of its eye makes an impression. When it’s outside, this chick is easy to spot.
