A tiny Golden Polish chick in Naselle, Washington, named Baby Tea, who was raised by Christy Fetzer, has earned a big title: Purina Poultry’s 2017 Cutest Chick in America.
The contest was conducted on Purina Poultry’s Facebook page, which Christy follows, and she and her son, Jacob, couldn’t resist entering the photo shown of the adorable Baby Tea, who was victorious over more than 1,100 other chicks vying for the title.
The newly minted celebrity is a member of Christy’s backyard flock, affectionately known as The Breakfast Club, so the winner’s prize will come in handy: A year’s supply of Purina organic poultry feed.
“I obviously love my chickens, I have 37 of them!” Christy confessed. “It’s an honor to have the Cutest Chick in America living in my backyard coop. And since the girls love to eat, they are happy with the grand prize of 14 bags of organic feed!”
