Or is it just the breed?slow developing?Who knows,i need helpūüėā

If you can post photos we will be glad to take a look at her.  Generally males are slower to feather out.  Is there any chance  she is a bantam breed  (small)?

Hi and welcome to BYC. I'd suggest posting your question and pic on the "General breed discussion and FAQ" forum.
