    I have two mottled cochins that are a few weeks old. One seems to be feathering out just fine and at a normal rate while the other seems to have WAY TOO MANY feathers for his/her age. Her wings are so "heavy" with feather development that she is unable to walk around easily. Anybody every seen this?
