    They are growing but seem a llittle slowfeathering in. I think the darker one may be cockeral but dont know for sure. They will be 3 weeks old on Sat.

    I have a little blue cochin doing the same thing. She just turned 2 weeks and barely has her wing tips. Its kinda fun to have one stay fluffy a little longer!

    So sweet! Great pics, Julie. You may be right about that black one, too.

    wow, they are cute.

    My Buff Orp girls are 2 weeks today and have a lot more feathering than your little cuties. I would post pics, but the camera is toast:|
