Pin feathers on my three week old partridge wyandotte bantam chick

This is Hedvig Hen-Chick showing off her pin feathers. This photo was taken when she was three weeks old (and she is now almost six weeks). I am guessing they are called pin feathers as I found this website about “What is a pin feather?” and it says “A pin feather is quite simply a new feather at the beginning stages of growth.”

So I am learning such a lot having these chicks. Not that I really need to know what a pin feather is. It is not as if the subject of pin feathers will ever come up at work or at a party but at least if it ever does, I can be slightly knowledgeable.

  1. After all the work I know it takes to keep Lorenzo and Fredo happy, I swore there would never be an animal in my house………then I began reading everything about your marvelous adventure with the chicks and things started moving ……….but NO, I will continue to learn about chicks from you, I will continue to laugh till I cry reading you, I will continue to enjoy the beautiful photos……….congratulations!!! I am looking forward to more on the chicks.

    • Aww, that is so sweet. Thank you Catalina’s Mom. My little feathered pets are so much easier than Catalina’s one very large and one very small 4 legged cute doggies. I am so glad I can make you smile from way down here in New Zealand πŸ™‚

  2. You never know – if you ever go on Who Wants to be a Millionaire, that question might come up πŸ™‚
