    @bienle123 I can't tell whether there's a chick. The freshly hatched have pretty dark heads but soon they become pale..

    Ah, I thought we have it in the FAQs, I have probably removed it to make them shorter.. Will check it.

    OK, it's not there. But I definitely put it into some of those threads about recognizing chicks from adults for individual species.

    I even remember putting images examples of Gentoo chicks at different age. Pity I didn't feature it.
