OK my single little chick who hatched out yesterday evening still has not "fluffed" out. It looks similar to a baby bird you would find in a wild birds nest. Its got down feathers but they seem to still be slicked down to its body. Its completely dry and walking/stumbling around and cheeping loudly but its not fluffy like the others pictures posted. It looks to be a golden color but I can't be sure. I don't know if I should give the little thing a bath or just let it be. Its been right at 12 hours since it hatched completely out of its shell.
