    I have a little chicken, she has almost stopped growing while the rest from her hatch have doubled in size compared to her. I've been told she might be Bantam...do they not get big?

    It might not be a bantam. I had a chick that was a runt and she was the size of a bantam as a chick and now she is the size of a standard sized chicken, now that she has grown. I would just wait and see if she ever catches up with the others.
