....okay its not really trouble it just sounded like a better title. I have 6 different breed chicks, all ordered specifically as females from a hatchery with a sexing guarantee because i cannot have roosters where i live and with my urban chicken license. I am watching them very closly to make sure they are actually females so i notice all small changes and have a few questions i hope someone can help with. I have a Lavender Orpington, double laced barnevelder, cream legbar, black copper maran, blue favacauna, and silver laced wyandotte. They are 1 week 4 days and growing like crazy. All of my chicks have gotten tons of wing and tail feathers except the BF and SLW. they have moderate wing feather growth and minimal if any tail feather growth. I know it is extremly early to tell if they are pullets or cockerals and that the feather growth is not an indicator of gender and all birds get feathers at a different rate but like i said i notice every little difference because i watch them so carefully. I guess my two main questions are: Do SLW seem to get wing and tail feathers slower than some other birds? Does anyone have any tips or indicators to gender i should keep an eye out for? Thank you in advance this is my first post.
