    I have four chicks that are 11 days old and thriving. Three of them have a ton of feather growth but one, my Barred Rock, barely has any. She appears healthy and active. Is she just a late bloomer and will catch up soon?

    Some don't get their feathers as quickly as others... I had a orp that did this....try some extra protein like boiled eggs or scrambled egg pieces for her sometimes.......
