Since I was told my silver laced Wyandotte chicks had the slow feathering gene I thought I'd document it for anyone interested. Un fortunately i dont have mich to compare it too. I was quite surprises at the contrast to other shots of normal feathered Wyandottes. Apparently it is supposed to help with lacing (https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?pid=7182230)
