We recently got a couple chicks, one of them a Silver Laced Wyandotte. (managed to snatch one before the store ran out!) We have had it for a week when I started noticing wattles forming, at first they were a yellow with a hint of pink, now they are growing bigger and pinker everyday. The comb isn't exactly pink, but I could almost call it that. I would post pictures but my silly camera isn't working This chick has a pretty independent attitude, the first to try to jump/fly on things - including me. It will not go anywhere without it's buddy, who is looking the dominant one of the two, these guys never peck each other...they seem more like friends than a 'I'll peck you if you get outta line' thing. So, is there feathering I need to look for on a rooster? And, what are hackle feathers? I hear them mentioned but don't know what they are. I'll post pictures when I can. Any help is welcome!
