    I have been waiting to name my girls until they are showing there different personalities or lets face it I can tell them apart LOL. Well one of my white rocks got a name yesterday. Bitty because she is ity bitty about half the size of the other girls and she is the same age. Now I am starting to worry. She eats and drinks fine goes after treats with the same gusto as the others I just can't understand why she is soo tiny? She is quickly becoming my favorite but should I be concerned about her size or is that just they way she is.

    I have a very small chick, less than half the size of the others, but is the bossiest of them all [​IMG]
