After just five days in my care, the hatchling has developed a lot of pin feathers. His back already has small feathers, and his chest is covered with small white feathery down as well.
It's great that this little fighter is growing up real well. I have a feeling he'll make it into adulthood.

And here's what he looked like at Day 9.
