This helps :) Thank you!
I got 3 Super Blues from MPC, 2 pullets and 1 cockerel. The 2 pullets are mostly white while the cockerel is a gray wash and getting evenly gray as he grows.
We were supposed to have 3 Welsummer pullets but ended up with 1 cockerel- I've only caught the two of them fighting one time so far. Everyone does a chest bump now and then (whereas my other batch, all pullets, never ever chest bumped) but only the 2 cockerels carry it past one or two and really concentrate on fighting.
Mine are now 26 days old and the cockerel is significantly larger, much thicker feet, and has a (very soft, fluffy!!!) tail. One of the pullets has a tail about the same length, while the other is just barely showing a tail.
Hope these help! Do you have any recent pictures of yours?
Day 17: (the others picked at her little splotch of black which started a spot, and the Vasoline glued those white feathers to the body making her look bald)
