    Is there a picture chart of baby chicks...? like i would like to know colors of baby chicks, = a grown chicken.

    In the book of standards, they don't show any pics of babies...just adults, they talk about coloring hens vs rooster...
    thanks for your help.

    Unless they are sex-linked or autosexing- the babies will look alike till adult feathers are in.

    really...i thought there would be a way of telling... my friend just bought a baby chick white butt, in the middle it's black, the head is black with a couple of white spots...could this be just a cross breed then?

    thanks
