    Don't know anything about Sultans, but it looks like my chicks (RIRs, Wyandotte, Delaware) looked at 3 weeks, scraggly, draggly, messy looking. At 4 weeks, they are beginning to look a little more groomed...[​IMG]

  4. Oh, Thank you for helping me with this. Mom will be happy to read that this is normal, she is registered so she can monitor her chicks health/growth...
