    Does anyone know if there is a site or thread that shows pics of chicks from day old to full grown? What I'm thinking of is a by-breed photo array taken week by week (of the same birds as they grow), so that someone who has a 6-week-old BR can go and see what a 6-week-old BR should look like if either male or female and someone with a 14-week-old OEG can do the same. I'm thinking this would help a lot of people figure out what gender their own birds are. I hope this makes sense....

    Awesome idea. It could be put somewhere near the breed pages!

    I would love to have a resource like that. I have scoured the 'net looking for one and can't find one.

    I think that's what they're trying to do on this site with the simple breed pages, but I don't think that there are a whole lot of people out there who stick-to-it close enough to have pictures at every stage. I actually did photos every day for a month myself, then weekly for another month, but after that, I gave up. Just didn't have the time to take them all out individually and shoot them every week.

    I want someone to do a "picture a day" flip-book type video of their birds! People have done it to themselves on youtube, but I wanna see a chicken grow up tht way. I'll start one after Thanksgiving (I need a new camera).

    I know they aren't every day .. or consistant, but I've sure enjoyed watching her grow up .. she's gotten shy, though, so I'll have to make an effor this weekend.

    That second pic is adorable - thanks for sharing - this is exactly the type of series I was thinking about!
