    Out of my 4 other girls of other breeds she is the oldest (4mths) but hardly has a comb or wattels. Is this normal for the orphan breed? (I know the spelling of her breed is wrong but autocorrect is being a pain.) my barred rock who is a month younger has more than her.

    Orpingtons are slow developers. It is completely normal.

    Is it also normal for her to now be the second smallest? My silver laced and my Rhode Island Red are twice her size. Vet says she's healthy
