Im wondering when chicks develop their adult plumage. I have laced birds and partridge patterned birds and am wondering when their patterns will come in. The laced birds feathered out mostly black with thin strips of color in the center, I remember my other laced birds were the same but don't remember when the lacing really came in. They are 12 weeks and I think some may be starting their molt.
