Worried about my chick
2

ClaireyMaryQuietContrary · 23/04/2014 22:44

We have 3 two week old chicks. Two have grown almost double in size since we got them at day old, one hasn't grown a bit, although her feathers on her wings have changed. I think she is bottom of the pecking order but I have seen her eat and drink and is in no way bullied. Is she ok or should I worry??

Perhaps isolate her? Just to make sure she gets enough although obviously will need a heat lamp as she won't have the heat of the others.

But obviously allow her time with her siblings so she's not on her own all the time
