    These are all about 4 1/2 weeks old and I'm just wondering if I have any Roos.

    Buff orpington. She has feathered out really slowly and is still mostly fluff. She also doesn't have tail feathers yet. Does that mean anything? Her comb is starting to turn pinkish also.

    Barred rock. She has a comb but its still yellow.

    And this is a bantam cochin. He/she is feathering out really slow too with really weird feathers coming in. They don't exactly flip out like a frizzle but they're very frayed and sticking out funny. Is that normal? The comb is also turning pink.

    Any help is very appreciated!

    That little cochin is interesting, doesn't quite look like a frizzle but the feathers don't look right either, wonder if they are wearing funny because he is feathering in slowly? The cochin and the BR have more comb than I like to see at 4.5 weeks, and I'm not real sure on the orp either.
