    Is it all dry? Has it puffed out at all? I seen a thread on a chick that looked like that when it died in the shell. I don't remember was wrong. But I think it was on raising and caring for chicks. It could be the parents. Post a pic if it starts fluffing up. The parents might have some other breeds that you don't know about.

    Yeah, there was a thread last week where a chick died in the shell and its feathers looked just like that. Looks like they have almost like little bulb on the feathers. As far as I saw nobody ever was able to say what could cause it on that thread. Hopefully someone will see this one and maybe have some answers for you. [​IMG]
