    Finally got a photo of the tail feathers.
    These chicks I was told that they are the same age. (3 months or so!!!)
    The top photo is the bigger of the two and since they were put the birdie hospital ( bottom photo bird was attacked thus the blue) has been oddly protective of the smaller (not from me but the other birds). The comb on the top bird is thicker and higher then the other.
    The baby on the bottom was attacked by my not so nice older girls(barred rocks and game hens). ( they left the top picture bird alone completely)
    The bottom photo poor baby is missing allot of feather now due to the fight but even before the tail never stood up as pretty as the top photo bird.

    I am so happy with how the bottom one is healing however his/her tummy is making so awful noises almost like the grit is churning. Poor baby when I go out the coop it lays on my lap and takes a nap while the top bird runs around showing off those feathers to the hens.

    Thanks in advance

    Same here - both are cockerels.
    That churning noise you mentioned, are you sure it's coming from his stomach?
    If so, have you tried giving him some yogurt or some olive oil in case there is something in there that is having trouble moving through?
