    Could be nutrition or genetics. If the chick is getting the proper feed, I would guess that it will feather out soon...just going to be slow.

    What breed is it? My little Sizzle was extremely slow to feather. Some breeds are just slower, and also males can be slower especially on the "shoulder" area. I'm pretty sure my Sizzle is a boy, even though I keep telling "her" what a pretty "girl" she is...oh well...

    Also, take a close look and make sure you don't see any mites or lice. I bet yours will catch up to the others soon.
