    How old are they? They like to peck at stuff that makes fun noises. Is the heat lamp at the same spot they are trying to climb on each other? If so they are cold, make them warmer! They could suffocate. You have a heat lamp on them, right???? Just don't make them to hot either. It depends on there age day olds are 95-100 degrees, 5 degrees per week after that usually until they are fully feathered

    He is 6 months. He looks like a hot mess. His hackle hasn't come in yet, so he looks like the Lochness Monster! Huge fluffy body, he probably weighs 10-11 lbs, with a whimpy long skinny neck!

    Those LF cochin take so long to mature. If there are things about him you like, I would say try to hold on to him a bit.

    Heather is it possible that he's going through a molt? If you're planning on showing other birds at Delmarva, I would take him and have him assessed there. The entrance fee is minimal and if you're going through the trouble of testing them anyway...

    Ok, just read your other post. If he's 6 months and already 10 pounds (WOW!), hackle feathers haven't grown in yet… sounds like maybe not done feathering out all the way. If he's got a great personality, give him a chance. Delmarva is only 4 weeks away.

    Oh, and I hope you're sleeping!
