Onion Seedling Progression

Does anyone have any good pictures or a link to pictures of how onion seedlings are supposed to progress? I know what good tomato and pepper seedlings should look like, but am unsure what good onions look like.

Thanks

I did bunching onions and they look the same as if the were big. Idk if that helps.
Well I did red but there still green but I cut one off didn't mean to and it tasted great even at that small.

Try searching the forum for starting onions from seed. You get pages of results but somewhere in there are a handful of threads in which we had some heavy discussions about the topic and many photos. Look for DoubleDogFarm or applestar as author to start with.
