I hatched 5 chicks over a week ago and the last one to hatch (2 days behind the rest) is still really tiny. She seemed really off balance and I had to handfeed her until now. Now she is eating and drinking on her own but is still super tiny! Her wing feathers are finally starting to grow out and she will eat a piece of food the size of her head!! I'm wondering if she will ever catch up with the rest or if she's going to be a midget chicken? She's definately got the will to live and I've more than given her a chance, she loves to be carried around like a pet! Any advice or suggestions to help her grow? I've been feeding her scrambled eggs & starter.
