Yeah, all my cockerels feather in really SLOWLY. I think there is a good chance it's a very badly marked pullet. If male I would expect far more black on the chest, and there is the fast feathering. I wouldn't get rid of this chick yet.I think what's throwing me is how fast this one has feathered. Every roo I've gotten before was SO SLOW for everything. This one has been ahead of everyone every step of the way, and it's probably the youngest as well.
Oh and that bit of orange on the chest in the last photo is a mealworm tail apparently.
