    My chicks are less than a week old and many of them have almost completely lost all their fluff and now have feathered wings. Less than a week old seems young right?

    That's about right. Little buggers grow way too fast.

    btw I was taking pics of our chicks every 3 days or so because they changed so much in that little time.

    To clarify-they should still have fluff at a week but definitely feathered out on wings. Here's a pic of ours at 9 days.
