    Wow, his side doesn't look good. Is he getting picked on? ?

    Is he a cochin? ? With feathered feet he can only be one of a few breeds.

    He is a mottled bantam cochin and could be a twin to my 10 week old "Bug" Bug is also very slow to feather down his back. My Bug started crowing at 4 weeks ~ Is Major crowing?

    I think he tried to crow the other day.. I haven't actually seen it but I know the noise came from his direction..

    thanks so much

    he is being picked on... watch that no blood is drawn or you'll get a bigger problem.

    Mottled cochin bantam! The roos always feather out alot slower then the hens. My brown/red cochin rooster did the same thing, for what seemed like forever he had nothing on his back or tail while the others were completely feathered out. What a cutie.... Love those cochins [​IMG]
