Ugly Chick

Some baby animals are so cute, you wish they would stay babies, like kittens and puppies. But baby birds? Don't think so. Thank goodness featherless chicks come with a promise to become something much more visually appealing.

Is it even possible to identify the species of bird from this picture? I'm thinking it's a cockatoo. They tend to have the ugliest chicks.

Thanks for the photo, Fredda.

UGH...looks like a small version of a Vulture. I sure don't know the kinda bird that is...

Now that you mention it, don't almost all chicks (still featherless) look quite a bit like vultures. This may be a scientific breakthrough!

No, that chick is perfectly healthy. Settle down. I don't think this chick needs you getting offended for it. It can't read.

Hey if you want to pick on ugly baby animals you should do a poll and see if the Juannie baby is cuter then the baby panda bear when they are all naked and pink.

It's a cockatiel. I've hatched several.

It looks like some sort of space alien at the moment. Yeow. That's really *not* cute. At least, not to me.

i wonder what it would feel like to be born and not be able to open your eyes. like have a layer of flesh covering your eyes. poor things.
