    I'm so glad I found this forum! As a first time chicken owner, it's helped me get through the first 12 weeks with my chicks. I found myself Googling constantly, and ended up here for the majority of answers. I had no idea what I was doing!
    My flock consists of three Welsummers and two Speckled Sussex. I have many questions,and am learning as I go. I'll be posting a new thread about one of the Speckled Sussex shortly, who at 12 weeks still has no tail feathers.
    Looking forward to meeting all of you, and learning!
    Kathy

    Hi Kathy, Welcome to the pulse beat of the chicken community, BACKYARD CHICKENS.
    Have you noticed the others pecking out his/her tail feathers?

    BTW there is a breed of chicken that doesn't have a tail. At the moment, I can't recall the name. Maybe someone coming on line now will have the answer..
