I have two Barred Rock chicks that I picked up at the feed store this past Saturday. One of the chicks is not growing. Her wings
look bigger, but she hasn't gained any weight or height, and the other chick is starting to really make her look tiny. She is eating and drinking, and their poop looks normal to me. Any ideas? She is a real sweetie we named "Little Bit" because of her size.

Give it more time. I've had the same thing happen twice. The first time the chick just remained small - but grew up and was a beautiful chicken - just a little smaller than the others. The second time the chick remained small - was active and ate and drank - but ended up dying suddenly - just failed to thrive.
