    I need to see what an appx 6 week old BA chick looks like (maybe 7). I do NOT recall my ba's looking like this last year. These are feathered pretty good and there is no greenish tint to the feathers and they are a more dull black. They still have white on their faces and a white tip under some of the feathers on each side. I'm not sure Meyer didn't send me the wrong birds.

    I'd appreciate the help.

    Well maybe they are the right birds! I just didn't remember them looking like that before (didn't recall that much white on the face at this age, or the white spot toward the back of the feathers on the back), but I feel better now.

    Thanks to all of you for posting!
