I ask because I picked up 5 EE's that are about 1 1/2 yrs old and compared to my Orps and Wyandottes they are very slight. Two of the birds are thin, but not dangerously so and they are all just coming out of molt. I'm wondering if it is the nature of the breed or were these girls just so underfed all their life they never filled out. The situation they were in was ffffaaarrrr from ideal so they are being quarantined, wormed and heavily fed before their fate is determined. Even being sent to the stew pot is better than being left where they were.
