    I have 10 BO's and 10 RIR, they are 1 week old. Now my RIR's feathers are growing in faster than BO's. Is that normal?

    They all feather out differently...I bet they are cute! My Orps are a little slower at the feathering thing too. They are two weeks old now and the Mille Fleurs have more feathers then they do lol Good luck with your chicks! Got any pics??
     
  3. Mine are 1 month and pretty much as all they feathers in, They really need is their head.
     
  4. These are my RIR crosses at 6 weeks, they seem to be on hyperdrive!

    Looking at them closer, my son noticed the BO's are just harder to see the feathers, but they are shorter. They are only 1 week old. I am just excited to see them growing!
