Lesson 740 – Toes, Beautiful Toes

By Wendythomas @wendyenthomas

There is one thing about Violet that we just can’t seem to get over and that is her perfect toes.


Beautiful, beautiful toes

Every time we pick her up, we’re just amazed when she wraps her toes around our fingers. “Look at how long they are,” Addy says to me on a daily basis.

It’s not like we haven’t had with normal toes before, we have. Many.  But we haven’t had a Black Copper Marans chick before with anything close to normal toes. I’m afraid our normal with regard to BCMs is not everyone else’s normal.

Remember Charlie’s little mangled toes?

Well, there you go, with a starting point like that is it any wonder that we are awestruck by our new chick; Violet?

And so we delight, much like new parents do in the length of their newborn’s fingers, in our little baby chick’s toes.  Perhaps she will grow up to play the piano someday.

Or at the very least, be a champion scratcher in our flock.
