Chicks are baby chickens. A mother chicken is called a hen. The chick's life cycle starts when its mother hen lays an egg. The hen sits on the egg for about 21 days covering it with her feathers to keep it warm.
When the chick has finally hatched, its feathers are wet and stringy but they soon dry and become fluffy.
