    One of my 4 week old, Speckled Sussex chicks appears like she doesn't have a tail. No tail feathers like the others. She acts normally but a birth she appeared blind. This has gone away but no tail to speak of. The only thing I could find was a little fuz on her lower back - the only thing that resembled any tail feathers. Any ideas?

    I have a few chickens that were born without tails and still don't have any, or it may just be a slow maturing chicken.

    Because when you said at birth she appeared blind he might just be a really slow maturing chicken that is also not too uncommon
