I have two 2 1/2 week old Barred Rock Chicks. They are the same age (was told they hatched the same day). One has feathers now and the other has tiny little wings with no feathers. This chick without feathers has always been the smallest and most aggressive of our bunch. The husband is totally convinced that Violet (Lady Grantham) is in fact a boy. Am I just fooling myself by hoping that Violet is just a slower grower then her "sister" Emily? These are some photos I got today. I'm home alone with them and it's impossible to take a picture of them out of their box without someone to help. This is Emily Violet - Same age as Emily but no feathers to speak of at all. "Her" tiny little wings just look so funny compared to her "siblings"
