Hope everyone's fuzzy butts are doing well! Mine are growing well, excepting one Sussex who just isn't thriving. Acting fine, eating, drinking, pooing fine - but is now the same size as the bantams.
Think one of my red chicks may be a cockerel - there's just too much comb and too much color for 16 day old pullet. Oh, well. Anconas are already flying pretty well around the brooder.
Most everyone is popping the chest stripes of feathers and a few have gotten that shaggy look to neck down that indicates pins pushing the down out. Ugly stage here we come!
