    Is there, either here or elsewhere on the web, a place I can see what my chicks will look like when they reach 2, 3, 4, etc weeks? I haven't raised chicks for (gulp)15 years and those were pheasants but I want to refresh my memory. I think mine are now 3-5 days old and they are growing feathers so quickly. I haven't a clue what breed any of them are since the guy we ordered them from put them in with store inventory and opened sales to anyone before we got there and we got what was left! Still cute though!!

    I think there is something like that on this board... I think barg has posts of his chicks as they are aging... Dunno where the post went though.

    I have weeks 1-6 of a silkie, but that wont be too helpful if you have standards :p. Good luck!

    I just found this because I'm wondering the same, too.

    Though, the amount of trouble this woman goes through seems to be a bit much... There are much more efficient ways of farming. Also, I don't know what breed is documented here, but it must be a production meat breed because they have leg issues and got big fast, poor things.
