    I would just make sure that it stays warm enough till it's feathered out. Our Light Brahma took much longer to feather out also. Turned out Phoebe was a rooster. I think I have read that males feather slower.

    Usually roosters fealther out slower than females. If you got them form a hatchery, they usually send roosters as packing peanuts. [​IMG]
