    This is "Little Chicken" First hatched of my much loved Easter egger "Big Chicken" and fathered by my Wonderful RIR Rooster lol.
    Still young it hatched Feb 10 and is now larger than the RIR, EE and Gold Laced Cochin that hatched the same day. It feathered in pretty fast and still going.
    Guesses please?
    Dates are on the pics.

    Its not old enough for saddle feathers, those develop around 14 weeks.

    Too young for saddle or hackle feathers. Too young overall to say for sure, but it's pinging my roo-dar. I'd love to see pics again around 6-8 weeks old!
