    I'm optimistic that I have 3 EE pullets but what about Little Feather? S/he is late to feather and the feathers are goofy. S/he's 11 weeks old and spunky and gets along well with the other 3 chickens but is still the smallest.

    Those goofy feathers sticking out are only on one side. She flies as good as the rest of the flock. Also there a some tail feathers that are curling. Should I just be patient or is there something wrong?

    That's strange. It doesn't look like a pecking issue, so I'm not sure. [​IMG]

    Could her feathers be comin gout in a different order? So the ones that normally pin those down could just be running late?

    Wow! She's beautiful! I am just guessing here, but I think she's probably an EE made by crossing an Araucana with other things instead of the more common Ameraucana. So she's rumpless. [​IMG]

    But what's with her goofy feathering? Has anyone seen anything like this before?

    Do chickens get Angel Wing? Because that's what it looks like to me. But I didn't know chickens could get it.

    I searched BYC about angel wing and it doesn't seem like chickens get it. Her tail feathers are curling too.
