    I have two 5 week Easter Egger chicks and one isn't growing otherwise she seems fine but the other chick is a little more than twice her size

    Sometimes she's a little more tired but she runs a round plays with the other chickens eat drinks and poops

    A rooster would grow slow like that all the other birds I have that age are the same size as the bigger chick
