I've had this chicken for two weeks now, I believe shes about 4 weeks old now. I'm not positive though, a friend bought "it" for me as a gift.
I was doing a bit of research last night on here, and I started to get worried that I'm seeing signs of roosterdom. It had very few feathers at 2 weeks old, a lot of the tail feathers were just bloody little stumps.
I'm pretty sad that I don't think I'll be able to keep it. It's a really sweet bird so far. There is just no way I can have a rooster in my current house. Aside from the fact that I just didn't want a rooster, they're illegal in my town.
The feed store it came from claimed all chicks were 100% female too.
can anyone confirm or deny my fears?
