I hatched a few eggs from my buff orp rooster and black australorp hen....4 of the chicks (11 weeks) don't seem to be growing any tail feathers besides some soft downy ones that curve upward. Anyone know why this might be? Could it be something to do with hidden genetics of the parents (they're hatchery birds)? One does have tail feathers coming in.
