    My poulets are about 5 weeks almost 6 weeks old. Their heads still have the downy chick feathers. When do they loose those? they have gotten all feathers, but like a patch on their chest. They are bronze turkeys. No clue on if double breasted or not. The store claimed they only by normal bronze. Also one has a couple of white feathers on its tail, is that normal?

    Head fuzz starts to disappear at around 8 weeks of age. A random white feather on a bronze I believe is normal.
