    Looks like it may be a little younger to me, I have two babies that will be 5 weeks tomorrow and they already have several feathers coming in, and they are getting their “dinosaur claws” on their wing tips.

    It's got some feathers on its tail and around its wings, and you can feel pin feathers on its belly.

    Okay that sounds about right. Mine are KCs so their feather development may not be the same.
