    Hi everyone,
    I have a 5 week old RIR pullet that I suspect has dwarfism. She was bred by a university heritage chicken breeding program so I don't believe that there would have been any issues with the parents. I noticed a couple of weeks ago that she was smaller so I quarantined her and found that she ate,drank and pooped well and had no other signs of illness. She is back with her coop mates and is still healthy, she is growing just not at the same rate as the rest. Just wondering what people's thoughts are or if it could be something different. Thanks!!
