now the one smooth chick is starting to get alot of red on the comb. i'm GUESSING this is an indication of a rool the other 3 don't the coloring yet.

Whoa, that chick is only 10 days old, and it's comb and wattles look like that? My cochin's comb just started looking red within the past week and it was 4 weeks old on Monday. How's the feathering coming in so far?

most of them are on track, tho i do have one that is about 5 days further (feathering wise) then the others, they were all hatched together

here's the feathered one





sorry about the photo's, but its so hard to gett a good shot, especially when they all black.
this one has wings, tail feathers, shoulder feathers, and spine feathers coming out, feet are fully feathed already as well.

and..oops i counted wrong, they are 16 days old today.
