This chick (now 8 weeks) was slow to feather out, and I've been worried about the fact that the beard is coming in black. Got the chick sexed (supposed to be a pullet) from MPC. Holds itself horizontally. I'm new to the breed--do some hens have a black beard, even if it's not apparently the desired color? Or does this mean she's a he? The rest of the body is the dark salmon, with some black on the chest.
