When getting our chickens we asked for one surprise rare breed chick- but had to be a female. They gave us this chick, and he/she has been developing much slower than the other girls, feather development is not as quick. Just this week the chick got feathers around her neck which has made her look more feminine. She is 5 weeks old and also appears to be taller with thicker legs, but I wonder if this is just because she isn't as fully developed or "fluffy butted" yet? What are your thoughts on whether the chick is a male or female or cant tell this soon? Also, they didn't tell us the breed, I am guessing lavender orpington, what are your thoughts? this was he/she over a week ago ^ the below photos are he/she this week: I am a new chicken owner so my education is limited. Thanks!
