    I bought my chicks at a week old just straight run and I ended up with two roos and 6 hens (what are the odds?) They feathered at the same rate for me may be different for others on here but this was that way for me [​IMG]


    Good luck with your babies, If you have questions feel free to ask, so many people on here are major helpful!!!

    I have had roos that feather out slow and some feather out fast with long tails early on. Same for the pullets although it seems like the girls usually feather out faster than the males.
    I think alot of it has to do with the line they came from.
