    She’s the only one who isn’t developing feather and her wings look off....she doesn’t seem to be affected by it but I’m curious if anyone has seen anything like it before. TIA

    :welcome She appears to be in apparent good health. Some birds/breeds are just slower feathering than others. She'll catch up to the others.

    Awesome! Thank you! I felt like that should be the case but her wings seem different too and out of ten she’s the only one not feathering (see group shot) We love our little “late bloomer” so I wanted to make sure she’s good :)

    I have four Cochin bantams that are going to be 7 weeks old this week and one does not have the feathers of her sibs.. I have to try and get a pic.. one developed way faster than the other three then two black ones look the same but the white one still has lots of feathers to develop.. :confused:

    Just an update because it still looks so weird and I’m just overly curious....here’s what she looks like today as compared to a flock mate

    They mostly develop at their own pace, unless they are getting pushed away from the feed dish etc.
