Baby seagull chicks have large feet !

Seagull chicks are born with speckled down and dark gray feet. Flight feathers will start coming in very soon and they will be able to fly in about 5 weeks. They are born with dark gray feet to blend into the bluffs, but their feet will change color to pink when they can fly!  (Adults have pink feet.)  Amazing.
