    I can post more pics if required. It's not properly feathered out yet (partial pin feathers).

    Also if anyone knows any good sites or book recommendations on this breed I'd appreciate it. ^^

    looks like the ones I have that are between 2 and 3 months of age. Mine are a little smaller but feathering looks very similar.
