Hi, I have a salmon Faverolle cockerel/pullet (he may be a roo, but I'm not 100% sure) who is 2 weeks old and really is getting his feathers in. My pullets are growing their feathers too, but theirs seem painless, and not noticeable. My poor cockerel has very long, pointy feathers growing in and it seems like he may be in pain. He is eating, drinking, walking, grooming himself, etc. fine, but his feathers seems to bother him. He also lays down a lot more than the others. When I grab him, or touch those feathers, he screeches. He also sleeps with his wings out a little bit, just so they don't touch his new feathers. He does not like being grabbed, you have to cup him in your hands for him to be comfortable. Do some birds have harder growth/molts than others? Is this the feathers causing his pain, or something else? I don't know what else it could be. He is fine other than the fact that he sleeps a lot. I think he just lays down to keep his pin feathers from being touched. Is there anything I can do to help him? I feel so bad for the poor little guy.
