    HI, I HAVE A 3 MO. OLD (RIR) ROOSTER THAT STILL HAS A YELLOWISH COMB & WATTLES. HE IS FULL OF ENERGY, EATS WELL & DRINKS PLENTY. HIS STOOL IS A GOOD COLOR & VERY SOLID, NO SIGNS OF WORMS OR OTHER EXTERNAL PARASITES. HE HAS ALL OF HIS FEATHERS BESIDES THE LONG TAIL FEATHERS, THEY ARE JUST BEGINNING TO GROW OUTWARD... BEFORE I GO TO A BIRD VET, OR JUST TREAT FOR WORMS, I WAS WONDERING IF THIS WAS JUST NORMAL..??? I ASK CUZ' I ALSO HAVE 5 HENS, FROM SAME CLUTCH WITH NICE RED COMB/WATTLE...
