@CryptFan is it normal for them to be almost fully feathered at less than 3 weeks?
Do you have a pic? They probably aren’t fully feathered, they are fully feathered when you can’t see any scruffiness and they look like little adult chickens.

You have at least 2 weeks before they are fully feathered. The more you bring them outside the faster they develop their feathers.

I also have a broody bantam hen, she along with the rooster and another hen are a really hard to find sought after breed. They are calico Cochins! So I hopefully will have 4 pure calico Cochins hatch along with 2 Easter egger x calico Cochin and 2 completely random mixes x calico roo.

Yup. he is about a week behind the others with his feathering and growth, that was our first sign... a friend told us that males often have delayed feathering. Then his comb got big practically overnight and he started getting a liddle waddle. Sad because we probably cant keep him, since were in the suburbs. Hes probably one of the friendliest ones too
