Sebright chick update photos

Here is the cheeky chappy which hatched on the 1st April. We think it might be a cockerel as he has a lovely little tail - although I would be pleased to be wrong about that!

The wing feathers came through first and now the smaller ones are filling in the gaps and covering the downy feathers up.

The tail feathers are clearly visible above.

The Sebright gold-laced feathers look beautiful on "him" already.
We are going to have to develop a care plan for this chap soon: we need to decide how to keep him until he might be big enough to put with other birds. He will certainly need a bigger box this week!
