One chick has very tiny wings? is this normal? (and a breed question)

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hello! New chick mom here :frow

 

We bought 8 chicks from tractor supply about 3 weeks ago. Now that they're (rapidly) growing I notice our one black australorp chick's wings are like a quarter the size of all the others. Is this normal?

 

Also my fiancé really wanted one of the odd ball chicks still available at tractor supply and the woman working didnt know what breed it is. It's such pretty coloring, wonder if any one has any ideas what it may be? 

 

first pic is my tiny winged friend, the other two are my mystery bird. But both make appearances in each pic :P

All chicks do not grow at the  same pace.  Males tend to be slower in feathering out and development. If the chick eats, drinks and runs around like the others, assume he/she is healthy.
