If you have babies at home right now, could you measure the length of the chicks' back? For a medium size chicken, like a leghorn or something similar. From the neck to the tail and also sideways, wing to wing. I think I remember them larger than they actually are. Someone shared this picture with me (from Green Renaissance I think), so I thought I'd reply back with a little joke and knit a shirt for my chick hahah. http://knitonecooktwo.files.wordpress.com/2013/01/chicken_sweaters1.jpg I probably won't put it on until day 2-3, but still, I'd like to know the size of the chicks when they are fresh out of the egg I will not leave the shirt on the chicken, I doubt it would be good for it, but just the time of a cute picture.
