    We purchased eggs on 5 May 2012 and hatched them out. One needed taking out of her shell and needed a fair bit of work (teaching her to stand etc). When the rest grew, we realised that she was a lot smaller than the others.

    Now obviously living outside, she seems to manage fine despite being half the size of the others. They dont bully her, though the cockerel does seem to give her...'special attention'.

    I was just putting mite power on them today and i realised her belly had no feathers! This is a new thing as i have put power on them before and never noticed this.

    What can i do?

    My worry is that as she is lower to the ground and leans forward when she walks, if her chest gets wet it could cause her problems?
