    Got 4 Ancona chicks about a week ago, they seems to do just fine, but are they slow growers/slow developers?? They seem to grow a lot slower than many other breeds I have.

    they are a thinner bird, I ordered one from Meyer hatchery and it was supposed to be a pullet. It was crowing at 6 weeks.
