    Anyone wanna take a guess at my LB chick? He/she is 3 weeks old yesterday and is feathering like crazy! Already has back feathers coming in, so I'm stumped. Name is Melody, possibly Mango. This chick is at the bottom of the pecking order. Picked from the pullet bin.

    Taken just a minute ago on my handheld device.

    It might be too early to tell yet, but I'm keeping an eye on the comb. So far the comb is short and very light yellowy.

    Very cute! Post more pics later I would LOVE to see how this one turns out.

    This chick is feathering a bit different then the others. I've never seen full back feathers before the wing bows were fully in.

    The back feathers go up past the neck and stop at the base of the head.
