My duarf chick died. She was an aracauna mut.

I believe she was 2.5 months, but still day old sized. She was fully feathered and looked just like a mini hen.
All of her sisters were growing like weeds, but she stayed the same size since hatching.

She was trampled yesterday. Even though she had shelter to hide in(a milk crate turned upside down) she was out drinking water, and someone stepped all over her.

I had a button quail recently like that. Several weeks later it was still the same size it hatched while the others grew like crazy. It even lived long enough to mostly feather but despite being seperated to avoid being trampled and give it a chance at getting food and water it still randomly died one night. I would bet odds are there is something internally wrong with them if they never grow any and they won't survive even if you take precautions.
