    We have three new fuzzy butts - SS. BO and a Delaware. They will be a week old tomorrow While the other 2's wings are coming in like gangbusters, our poor little Delaware doesn't look like hers are developing at all. She's growing fine, eating and drinking, but her little wings are kind of pathetic. Are Delawares slower to develop than the other two normally? They are also getting their vitamins and electrolytes in their water as well.

    Any thoughts? Thanks!

    ***EDIT*** I just read that Delawares are FAST growing and quick to feather out. Now I'm worried!!!
