    Hello BYC community I have a question for you. Is it possible that a chick will not grow or feather? I have some chick's that I purchased a few weeks ago and one of them looks like it is not growing at all. It is still just as small as it was when we got it. I will try to add a pic in a little bit

    I have only seen one chicken that never feathered out. It was super strange looking, never feathered out just had the fuzz. It did however get about 3/4 size and lived for a couple years before a raccoon got a hold of it. Will check back for the pics.

    [​IMG] it's the one on the left that hasn't feathered out yet or as you can see grown. It's baffling to us. The lighter one that is 3 over kinda looking at it is the same breed. Bought at the same time together. They are ameracaunas.
