Hi, I have 2 SLW and 1 GLW two of them have tail feathers and quite a bit of body feathers, one of the SLW has a no tail and a few body feathers but pretty much still has baby fur. Any ideas? The one that has no feathers is a little bit smaller then the others but not much.

Is the one that doesn't have feathers the GLW? I hatched out some brahmas once and had light and dark. The light ones had feathers so much sooner than the dark ones. I'm not sure if maybe the same thing is going one here maybe.

Possibly the slow feathering one is a roo. I have noticed in some of mine that the roos feathered much slower than the pullets.
