    painfully shy and nervous. I believe he is a roo as all the others are fully feathered out.

    OH yeah forgot to ask lol. Does this look like a roo? The poor chick shakes all the time. I try to hold him but he shakes worse :-(

    What breed is he? He really is too young to tel though. I had a chick do that whenever I held it, just shake and crouch down. He is now my favorite rooster.

    They are standard cochins. This fellow is the only chick not feathering out as fast. Also only chick who crouches down and shakes, he even pecks at you when you go to feed them. Here a shot of back he has no feathers there.

    How old is he?? he looks really young. At four weeks you can usually tell.

    It's still too young to tell then. I would wait till it's 4 weeks, then people could make an educated guess. He's a cutey either way!

    If it is not feathering out very fast, you might try to do the fermented feed with ACV and chick start. Search fermented feed on here and there are lots of threads about it!
