I believe I read or heard somewhere once that allegedly pullets feather out more quickly than roos? Is this true? or is it the other way around.. I have mixed silkie/EE peeps that hatched a week and a half ago and some do appear to be feathering out quicker.. they are also with mom being raised strictly by her since these were a big oops!! she found a good hiding spot in the barn and hatched out 6 babies (one has since died) until I located her and the new hatched surprises and took the remaining unhatched eggs of nearly 9 away from her.. I also tried to do that wing thing when they were a day old and well that did not appear to go anywhere with me and I just don't see how possible to vent sex these little things.. can you tell I am praying for pullets.. I need more roosters like a hole in the head.
