    I'm thinking one week old. She's getting grey feathers on her wings now. She's also taking more of the shape of a chicken than a fluffy golf ball of a chick [​IMG]

    When will she start to become more independent (no more need for warmth, able to defend herself, fly, etc)
    Can't wait until she's able to fly! [​IMG] She'll probably be a great flier, just like her mother..

    What should I expect in her growth and development in the future?
    Thanks!

    I bet if you post a picture, you'd get some guesses as to her age. Also what breed?

    I'll try to post pics but I still need to take some good ones. They'll come though, for sure! She's so pretty, I have to say, she's the prettiest little chick I've had. lol
