    Just wanted to confirm this is "normal" looking. It's my 8 week old SLW. I only have one SLW... the others are different breeds so I have nothing to compare her to.

    Is she molting? There are no patches, but the feathers she does have aren't full.

    Also... She looking like a girl yet? [​IMG] the wait is killing me!

    Chicks do change from fuzz to small feathers to big feathers as they reach maturity, aka. mini molt, juvenile molt. As long as they are eating, pooping and behaving normally, there is no reason for concern.
