THE STORY OF THE UGLY BABY, BIG CHICKEN.

One day the farmer was out near the hen house. The farmer noticed this big, ugly chicken

outside the lot. The farmer picked up the big ugly chicken and threw him back into the chicken lot.

The farmer often noticed how peculiar this big, ugly chicken acted. But the big bird soon learned how

to scratch in the dirt for it’s food.

The big bird grew AND GREW, HE BECAME THE BIGGEST CHICKEN ON THE LOT.

This big bird was crazy and acted crazy. He was the craziest chicken the farmer had ever seen.

One day the game warden was driving by, he was so surprised when he saw the big bird in the chicken lot.

He stopped his jeep and ran toward the farmer.

The game warden screamed there is an eagle in with your chickens.

The farmer laughed, Naw, it is just a big ugly chicken!

The ranger said, NO! IT IS AN EAGLE.

The farmer said, Naw! It is a big, ugly, stupid chicken.

The ranger said, I will prove to you this is an eagle.

So the ranger grabbed the big bird and climbed up the ladder in the barn.

Once he was in the hay loft the ranger released the bird, and it slowly fell to the ground and started scratching

in the dirt.

The farmer said, See, I told you it was a chicken!

The ranger asked, Will you sell me that chicken?

The farmer said, Sure!

How much do you want for the eagle?

The farmer said, I get $2.00 per chicken.

So the ranger said, Tomorrow, I will come and pick up the eagle.

The farmer said, The chicken is yours, do as you want.

The ranger came early the next morning, he loaded the big, ugly, stupid chicken in a cage in the back of

his jeep.

The ranger drove for several hours, climbing higher and higher up a mountain.

Finally, the ranger reached the pinnacle of the mountain, it was a cliff dropping many hundred feet.

The ranger unloaded the cage and took the big, ugly, stupid bird out of the cage.

The ranger held the big bird high in the wind, and the ranger said, We will see if you are a chicken or an eagle?

The ranger forcibly threw the big bird over the cliff, the bird fluttered his wings, and fell 50 feet, 100 feet.

Then out came the wings, the wind was blowing, the big chicken started feeling a new feeling!

The bird started circling and he loved this new feeling, he started climbing higher and higher.

The last time the ranger saw the eagle it was soaring hundreds of feet in the air.

You see he was an eagle, he just didn’t know it.

He had a chicken’s heart, the wind launched him into what God had intended him.

He was never a chicken, he was an eagle.

Perhaps you need to launch into the plan and purpose of God for you!
