I posted a picture of this EE chick a couple of weeks ago and he doesn't have many more feathers now that he did then. In fact, I don't even see pinfeathers on his neck or back. He isn't getting picked on--I watch the flock very carefully to be sure--if anything, he tends to be aggressive. The problem is that if this is the most he feathers, once it gets cold he's not going to make it. BTW he and the rest of the chicks that came with him are 8/9 weeks old and his brother is crowing as of today.
