    Hi everyone,haven't been on for awhile, but am hatching again this year, I seem to have a 3 week old chick who isn't growing wing feathers, the other 3 that hatched with her have all got wing feathers, they are pekin bantams, does any one know why this might be, tia[​IMG][/IMG][/IMG]
    The first 2 pics are of the chick that hasn't got wing feathers and the last pic is off one of the chicks that are getting them as normal

    Hi there :frow

    I've had the same with some Pekin that I hatched this year too. They eventually all caught up with each other. Each bird is individual on how fast they feather out even though they are of the same breed.
