I have 2 Speckled Susex chicks they are supposed to be the same age 1 is fine very pretty plump the other is growing, eating, playing and loves her treats she is not as big as the other. So I think she was a late bloomer. My problem I would like to put the girls out in 2 weeks or so. I live up state N.Y. on top of a mountain still very chilly at night. Her feathers are coming in very thin almost twisted they are dark but with no speckles. Has any one heard of any thing like this before. Do I dare put her out with the other girls she is with them now in the kindergarden brooder. she seems to be fine my worry is that it will be to cold for her. Thanks for of your help. I really do love this site.
