"Itty Bitty," our olive egger chick

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi everyone, I bought 6 chicks last Sunday. The three olive eggers (mix of Ameraucana and maran) were week olds, and the buff orpingtons were day olds. When I got them, one olive egger was only a little bit smaller than the other two, and the orpingtons were almost half the size of them. Now, it's like all our chicks are growing quickly, except our little "Itty Bitty" olive egger. She is so small and cute, she looks like a little sparrow compared to everyone else. What gives??? I am not complaining, she seems healthy and I think she's adorable, I'm just wondering why she is so tiny. :) The feet on the other chicks are three times bigger than her little feet.

The breeder doesn't have bantams, but she does have silkies. Maybe a silkie got into the woodpile, hehe.
