This is a 7 week old australorp chick that has been slower to feather out than my others. it's comb is larger redder than my other chicks but it is my only australorp. the rest have smaller combs to begin with.
sorry about the pic quality. if needed i can try to take some better pics tomorrow.
so far, the hackle feathers look rounded but again they're not all in. i also haven't seen much in the way of spur development that differs from any of my other hens. he/she appears to be lower in the pecking order but also younger than all but 1 other chick.
thanks in advance
