    the babies are 2 weeks old and they are flying, roosting on the coop door, these are the outdoor chicks and the indoor chicks wing feathers aren't as developed, I haven't figured out if it's the environment or breed that has decided the development since they are 2 different breeds, I just find it amazing and wanted to share.

    I think it's generally accepted on here that they feather out faster if they are outside. That's been my experience, anyway.
