    Is it normal for a blue Langshan to feather very slowly? It is far behind the others in the batch we got at TSC, with the exception of a barred bantam chick. The Cochins (bantam), Anconas, frizzles and OEGB are all completely feathered out, but the Langshan is still at least 50% down. Is it a breed thing?

    Possibly a sex thing. I have no experience with Langshans but the breeds I do have experience with , the boys were much slower to feather out.
