Young Middles were like middles, but more juvenile. They had yellow feathers but acted and wore items more related to a middle. They still enjoyed pookie activities though, and sometimes even used their phrases. They were rarely found in the Pet Shop, so they were most often seen at large pookie contests where there were already common family members in place. Sometimes, during sleep, a pookie might have aged into a young middle; this was shown by the growth of hair. Mumus and duh duhs often mistaked young middles for regular pookies who weren't very "cute", or discolored newbie biggies and older middles. Young middles either went to lower middle school or upper elementary school.
