    As a new chick person I looked for numerous timeline/progression photos of baby chicks to just have an idea what to expect and couldn’t really find any. So I started my own. Here is a few of my fluffy butts so far... I think my Pearl might be a “he”

    Had to dig and find a picture of a lighter young partridge cockerel. Looks around 10 or so weeks old in this. I can tell it's male just by color.
