    Does anyone know of a site or where to look for pictures of chicken growth? I have done quite a bit of searching with no avail. I just know there has to be something some where. I received these chicks yesterday and swear they have grown over night. Any help would be appreciated. John

    They do grow really fast. I don't know of such a web-site. But I have raised several batches and they lose the "cute-little-ball-of-fuzz" real quick.

    Buff orps and australorps. I am probably asking the question wrong in my searches. I see a lot of sites that give weights no pics or drawings. They are growing feathers on their wings but still fuzz balls.

    The wing feathers are growing, they look to be in little white tubes. I am really amazed with the size and health of these birds. No comparison with the one that hatched then died. It was doomed from the start. John
