    I really am floored at how fast time has flown with these guys. I've been taking and saving pictures so I could make a time line. Glad you guys found the post interesting. [​IMG] Yeah, I think he's pretty too. [​IMG]

    You're most welcome. Hopefully this will help newer folks get an idea of what to expect with their chicks.

    Yep, I see the mean eye! [​IMG] It's funny too how their eyes start off blue, but end up yellow.
