    But it has such neat colors! [​IMG]
    Pictures may not show it in great detail but he/she is blue gray on the body with light brown shadowing by the shoulder/wing area and a big chipmunk stripe down it's back. One of the pictures has both parents in there...so you can tell me maybe? what it will look like?
    Here is the chick:

    I've heard on this board that they can become more stressed if there is only one but since it's with mom and dad it will probably be ok. [​IMG] Of course 1 more wouldn't hurt but not one of the 4 wk olds. Can you buy a 1 day old at TSC and sneak it under her at night?

    I would say the chick will be fine if it is with mom but I am not sure about it being with other adults and the rooster. I know some people separate the mom with her babies away from the crowd for a while? If you got another chick the mom may not accept it so it is a gamble either way.
