I'm very impressed with him he's not done growing in his hackle and saddle feathers yet but he's a gorgeous guy. He's rather slow to feather in but he's maturing beautifully. I'm also VERY impressed with Luna. The pair of them are what I'm most excited for. I think they're going to produce some incredible babies
Thanks for sharing your pics. It seems like I heard that slow feathering produces better barring. Can anyone add to that either way?
I've had that happen too, usually when cockerels were competing with each other. The behavior did not persist, but I had the same reaction as you.
What did you do for the wounded pullet?
