    Hi all, another stupid question. Does anyone know where to find a chart that describes the chicks stages of development? I realize they'll probably all develop a little different, but something that would give me an idea. For instance according to the feed store I bought three day olds, and now we've had them for 5 days and they are getting some pretty noticable wing feathers I don't know if that is age appropriate or not. Part of it is just pure curiosity on my part but the other is I've been researching alot about my chicks and most new things you can introduce the chicks to are age dependent.

    Hi welcome to BYC.
    Is something like this chart what you had in mind?
    It is only a rough estimate, but it gives you an idea.

    Yes, something similar to that only maybe a bit more detailed on which feathers come in when on chicks. You know like wing feathers, tail feathers etc.

    The problem with this type of chart is that different breeds mature at different rates. Are you thinking of a particular breed?
