    Either the Red Sex-Links or the Gold Sex-Links are developing tail feathers. Its weird how that works. I went to bed last night, no tail feathers. I go look at them this morning and there are tail feathers on 3 of the birds. I can tell the Brown and the Black Sex-Links apart but I cant tell the Red and Gold Sex-Links apart yet.

    It is peculiar how quickly the start getting those feathers in. It always amazes me.

    My 2wk old cochins are developing at different speeds - some have lots of wing & foot feathers, tail feathers and are now developing the row of feathers down the middle of their back. Some still have only short, stubby wing & foot feathers. I love watching all the changes!
