    Someone else on BYC started a thread of 8 Week chicks. (Sorry - Can't remember the name). I thought it was a brilliant idea. As a newbie myself I am always wondering what my chicks will look like in the coming weeks. And I had a hard time finding pictures in a central location. So thought I would start several threads bringing us up to 8 weeks.

    Please add your own pics of your chicks at these ages. And please put in breed so all us newbies can get an idea of what our babies will look like

    Here are mine at 1 week

    Glad you like the thread. Before my chicks arrived I was always looking to see what they would look like! I started a thread for each week. Will start a 6 week thread tomorrow after 6 week pics!

    I'll be excited to see you chick pix!

    So I am a little slow on the uptake! I thought your chickens were just one week, found your other pictures! Love them! This is probably a silly question, when you get them, how did you figure out which was which breed? I have four several similar breeds (colors) ordered.

    It's a good question! I sat with the Meyers Hatchery catalog comparing the chick pictures to the chicks. That being said we did have a case of mistaken identity. We started a buff orpington and a golden sex link and I thought I knew which was which. Then one died (the one that I though was the golden sex link. At week three when feathers started to come in we realized that our buff orpington was really a gold sex link and that the buff was the one that died. Felt pretty silly! [​IMG]

    As they get bigger though the others feathering gets more exciting too. I love my Barred Rock. And I'm wishing I had a laced Wyandotte (not sure whether I would get gold or silver)
