Let's rewind back several weeks ago. I noticed one of my chicks wasn't growing in tail feathers like the other chicks, so I asked about "her" on here, and apparently that's a sign that "she" is a rooster. Now comes the part that is really confusing me. Now, at around 6 1/2 weeks old, he still looks like his sisters. His comb is only slightly bigger, if not the same size, has basically no wattles to speak of, but he still has hardly any more tail feathers than he did at three weeks of age! He's an RIR, so I thought I would have seen more signs of 'virility' by now. I've heard that RIR's also come with different tails, I think they're called 'rumpless'? Could he actually be one of these? Or maybe he's just late with his comb and wattles?
