First, I have one of the male CX who is 4 weeks old and hardly has a feather on him except for his tail and wings. He is nearly bare everywhere else. I am moving them out of the garage tomorrow and I am a little concerned for him to be out without his feathers. Any input regarding him would be helpful. Second, I have one little (Nugget is his name, and I don't name my meatied, usually) from the same batch, he is actually no bigger than the purebreds I received in the same order and he is still covered in downy feathers except for some on his wings and a few in his tail. Is this just one of those runt-type things and when should I butcher him? By the way, he does NOT act like the runt of anything, he is quite cocky. No pun intended.
