My chick who was hatched by a broody hen is three weeks and two days old today. I was looking st other posts on here of chicks around the same age for comparison and I’m noticing that s(he) is a lot smaller than what you guys are posting. Is this chick not growing fast enough? Just small for this age? The mom and dad aren’t small so I’m a little worried now

so cute! just try to make sure they don't get pecked and bullied because they are small. at that age it won't be to much of a problem, but as they get older they might wind up at the bottom of the pecking order
