Bantam?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
One of the first two chicks that I got from this flock was a white crested Polish named Henrietta. We were told when we got her that she was a week old, but we soon figured out that she was closer to 3 weeks or a month. Now all my other chicks are approaching their month birthday, and Henrietta is easily the smallest. She has almost all her feathers in, but also has teeny tiny feet and hasn't grown a lot within the past few weeks. Is it possible that she's a bantam?

Here's a picture of her next to some other chicks for size comparison:

Where did you get her? It is very possible that she is a bantam.

I got her from a local farmer at an open market. The farmer seemed nice, but I've since learned not to buy from markets like that if you can avoid them. The other chick he gave us (an Easter Egger) turned out fine at least! And Henrietta is very healthy and lively, Bantam or not!

​Agreed, most likely a bantam
