    I am raising my first flock of chickens and i am wondering if anyone has any suggestions as to what happened. One of the breeds i chose is the blk australorp. I got 2 and they were day old baby chicks. Here they are today. The picture does not show the true size difference. But its not too bad. I wonder if the little one is a bantam of the breed or a runt or not even the same. I think it is about a third of the size and its way behind on getting in the big girl feathers. They are about 8 weeks in this pic. I can get better pics if anyone here thinks they can help me to figure out what my mystery chick is. Thanks
