I need some help. I got some chicks back in March. I fed them starter then grower now they are on pellets. They are EE’s. It seems like they never really grew. My dads on the other hand from the same batch are huge and pumping eggs out left and right. I have wormed them. What could be going on?

This is concerning...are they way smaller than your Dad's birds?
Do you either of you have other chickens too?
Did your birds ever show any illness...lethargy, funky poops, etc?
My first thought is, the only difference is the ground they are on, they may have picked up coccidiosis which damaged their intestines and inhibited normal growth.

Both of us have other chickens. Mine were in a separate pen from my others. They never showed any signs or had bloody poop. They always seemed healthy and spunky. Just not sure
