Hi i have a blue laced red wyandotte bantam named Pretty Bird that we got when she was five days old.I put her in the brooder with the chicks i had just hatched so she was a little bigger then them then.Now she is 7 weeks old and my bantam silkies that used to be her size are way bigger and my Buff orpingtons are 5 times bigger then her now,shes older then all of them.I hatched 5 red comets. They are two weeks old now and she is still smaller then them. Pretty Bird eats,drinks,plays and acts like all the others but just doest grow.Does anyone have a chick like this? Will she be okay? could she be a dwarf bantam or something?
