    What age range does this typically happen in? Because my sweet little fluffy chicks are looking like some weird partially feathered dwarf chickens,lol. [​IMG] Bless their hearts!

    [​IMG] I think they look even cuter when they're in the 'ugly' phase. If I remember correctly it happens really fast, I think at about three weeks? Or maybe before that, I can't remember...

    The timing sounds right. Mine will be 3 weeks Monday. Bless their hearts, they get sweeter by the day but wow...not so cute at the moment,lol. I can't wait to see them full feathered, they are going to be so pretty!

    I need to post new pics!
