OK everyone. This is Alice, my sweet 8 week old speckled sussex. She feathered out much slower than the other chicks her age. They were different breeds so I coughed it up to that. BUT... with peeps telling me that my 3 week old speckled sussex who feathered out much slower than the others is a little boy I wanted to see what you thought of Alice. I hope I don't have to change her name!!!
