Hi welcome-byc.gif

Glad you could join the flock! Is your small one a different breed to the others. How old are they are now? Does she eat, drink and normal? She may just be a runty chicken this can sometimes happen.
If you could post a pic and a few more details that would be fantastic.

Good luck hope to hear back from you soon. Enjoy BYC frow.gif

Photos would help  - maybe her father was a bantam breed.   Do you have any bantam roosters in your flock?

Very cute, I would say she has just taken after the Pekin and is small. She looks healthy enough to me big_smile.png

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
