    two pullets, one roo. just over five weeks. the roo has wings, the pullets wing and shoulder feathers, nobody has even the hint of a tail. is this normal? is it a breed thing? my other 5 weekers are down to just head and neck fluff and these three look like they still need to be under a heat lamp.

    Mine are 6wks now...I have 1 male and 2 females. Two(M & F) are feathered out great, but the other female has yet to grow her tail. She looks so funny with all her feathers and no tail.
