This is my first time raising chicks. I bought 7 sexed pullets of different breeds and they're about a week and a half now. My Welsummer chick seems to be about half the size of the rest. She's pooping normally, and I've seen her eat and drink but it doesn't seem nearly as frequent as the rest of the chicks, she also seems to be sleeping a lot more then the rest and fairly lethargic. I've been giving her some scrambled eggs for extra protein and I have put cell salts into their water (as a have another scissor beak chick who also needs the added vitamins and minerals). I'm just wondering if there's anything else I can do to hopefully help this chick thrive. Thanks!
