This is my eleven week old Easter Egger (Chipmunk)
today. He/she has been molting for a couple of weeks. I can see yellowish saddle feathers growing in that are pointed. I'm starting to be sad because we've made a lot of effort to hold all our birds to make them easier to handle and this one is a pretty nice bird when it's not beating up on the other birds. We had to separate Chipmunk from the the other birds at 3 weeks since he/she was beating them up as all the feathers came in.This is Chipmunk on the left at 2 weeks.
This was the same bird at 3 1/2 weeks old (10 days later - wow!). This photo was a exactly a month ago at 6 ½ weeks. The last photo was at 9 weeks. This has been a common behavior of stand-offs with the other birds with hackles raised. However, some of the other birds return the hackle raising and often challenge the Easter Egger.
