    Okay.......what he heck is this thing? lol Same age, legs are HUGE (and white) but this one has almost NO feathering other then down the back of his neck, it's just weird! He eats well, runs around chickenlike like the rest, doesn't get too picked on and does some picking himself but is this even a BO? We'd swear he was a Turkey! Help!!![​IMG]

    I see why you might be confused about #3. A late bloomer? Sorry, I'm no help at all!

    I agree with Justanother Brooke, they all have pretty big combs for that age [​IMG]

    The obvious Cockerel #1 has a very red comb and wattles. He was the first to begin feathering out. The pullet in #2 feathered at a tad slower rate but #3 still has one inch feathers on his wings, NO tail feather but his feathers are all in on the back of his neck, plus he's HUGE, I was wondering if perhaps having gotten them from a hatchery he may be some type of cross? although his feathering is coming in buff colored..........what there is of it!
