    last saturday i went to my husbands uncles house and found a baby chick in his car parts shed. ive had him for 5 days now and he still looks the same size. my avatar is a picture of him tooken 4 days ago. in the past 5 days he did loose the fluffyness on the edge of his wings and tail. they are white/yellowish feathers. is that going to be the color he will develop? also how can i tell if it will be male or female? thank you alot. hes my first and part of the family, so i dont know if i should get another one :)

    can you add a larger picture? its hard to see the features in your avatar photo.
    I'd definately get at least 1 more but if you are able to i'd get 3 more. Chickens love to have buddies.
