I have 9 'little girls' that will be 8 weeks old the end of this week. Five of the 9 we incubated and hatched out from our 'yard' girls. Three of those 5 I 'helped' hatch out but that is entirely another story altogether....... Of those 3 that I hatched out I have one black 'little girl' who has NEVER had any tail feathers. You don't see a bare spot and she has feathers that go all the way back but she looks like a Kiwi bird. The feathers just go around her bum...none sticking up in the back like ALL the rest of them. Like I mentioned earlier, I helped her out of the shell and she was pretty well stuck....humidity issues....at first I thought maybe some were pulled out while helping her out and that they would just grow back but now she's almost 8 weeks old and still NOTHING!! ANYONE have any ideas or suggestions as to why??? Other than that she seems like all the rest. Thanks in advance for ANY ideas.
