My bantee babies are two weeks old. One isn't growing as fast as her sisters and her feathers are not filling in as well. She does get picked on a little. I tried to isolate her, but she immediately started hollering and flew back into the other box with her gal pals. I just put all three into a much bigger box. She eats and drinks and seems otherwise normal, maybe a smidge sleepier than the other two. I keep the heat lamp on when they need it and keep their food and water fresh. She's the beige one- how does she look? Should I be worried?
Another question, is it too early to start giving them garden scraps? Just the little beet greens I've thinned out.
(This is my first time raising chicks by myself. I used to "help" my dad, but now I see how much work he really did! Any advice would be greatly appreciated!! By my dad also so I won't call him as much 😉)
