Video Tutorial:

If you prefer learning by watching a video tutorial rather than reading this blog post you should check out the video down below. Also, subscribe to my youtube channel where I post new tips, tricks and tutorials every alternate day.

Project Folder Structure:

Before we start coding, let us look at the project folder structure.
We create a project folder called – ‘CSS Chick Animation’. Inside this folder, we have two files. These files are index.html and style.css.
The first file is the HTML document while the second file is the stylesheet.

HTML:

We begin with the HTML code. The HTML code creates elements required to create the structure of the chick. We also create the structure for clouds using HTML. Now copy the code below and paste it into your HTML document.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
  <head>
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0" />
    <title>CSS Chick Animation</title>
    <!-- Stylesheet -->
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css" />
  </head>
  <body>
    <div class="container">
      <div class="chick">
        <div class="body">
          <div class="wing"></div>
          <div class="beak"></div>
          <div class="eye"></div>
          <div class="blush"></div>
          <div class="feather"></div>
        </div>
        <div class="left-leg"></div>
        <div class="right-leg"></div>
      </div>
      <div class="shadow"></div>
      <div class="cloud cloud1"></div>
      <div class="cloud cloud2"></div>
      <div class="cloud cloud3"></div>
      <div class="cloud cloud4"></div>
    </div>
  </body>
</html>

CSS:

We need to style, shape and position these elements to make it look like a chick. for this we use CSS. We also add animations to the elements using CSS. First copy the code provided to you below and paste it into the stylesheet.
