Greetings to the Wonderful BYC Community! We are new to chickens and just recently incubated our 2nd successful batch of baby chicks from our eggs. Gratefully all our newly hatched babies (born 2.19.15) are happy and healthy, except for one possible exception. One little chick never seemed to grow, so we keep her inside our house where she remains now. In fact, I hear a slight and happy lilting chirp in the background at the moment. This sweet baby girl (presumably a female ; ) is happy and seems to have normal and average development except for her size. She is as lively, active and spirited as her mates, yet she looks as if she's only a few days old. She is a mixed breed chicken with a barred mother. Does anyone have insight or information about a chick like this? She's quite charming and has endeared us all (and she's been quite spoiled as well!) Thank you for any information you all might have for us.
