How much longer until feathers?
Mine ar 1 wk old
What breed? Certain breeds, such as Buff Orpingtons take longer to mature into their feathers...
Any minute now.
I think all of mine had wingtips at 1 week.
I have 2 White Australorps and 2 Welsummers they are nearly 2 wks old
Mine all had flight feathers after a few days. The older girls are 4-5 weeks old and are "mostly" feathered.
* I'm not an expert, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn last night.
Do you have any pictures of your birds? I have 6 welsummers and 8 black astralorps and they all have major wing development at a week old.
I took this a few days ago..this is a welsummer at about 1.5 weeks
I would love to post and image but don't know how.
My Welsummers look pretty much like yours.
I'm pretty sure my are a week, they have feathers are their wing tips and some are starting get little feathers where their tails are.
