    If she is laying then she is done growing for the most part. She may put on some more weight. Maybe she is just small

    She just seems so small I left for 2 weeks and shes definitely done some maturing but its like shes 7 months old and little less than half the size of my barred rock. shes the perfect size though. very cuddly too.

    Hi! I know it’s been years since you posted this, but I’m curious if she ever got any bigger. I have a 3-wk old Buff Orpington and she is exceptionally small compared to my other girls at this age. I’m wondering if it’s possible that mine is dwarfed.
