Remember the 20 baby chicks we bought? They are all still alive and well! We moved them out to the hen house.
10 are Barred Rock hens and 10 are Columbian Rock hens.
As they started to grow, we noticed that one of the Columbian Rock hens was kind of ugly..
She was not only much smaller and slower growing..
..but also seemed to be almost void of feathers.
As she grew, she started to get a few feathers around her neck and a few on the tips of her wings. The rest of her body was either totally naked or had fuzzy fur like down. She still looks like she is wearing fuzzy bloomers.
In all other aspects, she seems perfectly healthy, but she cannot fly even high enough to get up on the perch...
