Hi all,
I've got a beautiful little cochin chick, 4 weeks old, who has been slow to feather out, and a smaller than the others. Everyone else is 2-3x as big. She's eating and drinking just fine, acting totally normal, but sometimes I catch her opening her beak in time with her breathing rate. Temp is at 80 degrees, no other chicks acting funny.
Ideas? Thanks!!!!!

Sadly, I came home today and the poor little thing had died
The temp was fine, she just might have been too stressed or sick beyond what I knew was going on inside to live. Shame too.. she was feathering out to be what looked like a splash cochin!

Well, glad to have 27 others to love on.
