    This is not urgent at all, but I can't help but be curious... Does anyone know how long will it be until my bantam sumatra cockerel grows in his full set of feathers? He's gorgeous but looking a bit scrappy for now as everything grows in, and I'm just wondering when he'll reach full feathering. [​IMG] He's got quite a few pin feathers on his rump so they're coming in, just a little at a time. His birthday is April 21st, and his name is Royal. Here's a photo of him:


    Any sumatra experts care to weigh in?

    I'm so excited to have a pair of bantam sumatras. Royal's matched pullet is named Rexy. I've wanted a pair for quite a while and I just happened to hatch a pair from a big group of eggs (mostly OEGBs) that I bought from PeepsInc. [​IMG]
