    This is my eight week old with my one week olds. She seems fine except for being sooooo small. She has a slight scissor beak. Is she gonna be ok staying this small? She seems to eat and drink just fine. Any advice?[​IMG]
    Also her tail never stops moving, goes up and down with every breath. She is beautiful.[​IMG]

    What breed is she? Those of us with serama {smallest breed) watch for chicks that are smaller.

    What breed is she? She might just be a bantam, and some bantam breeds, like seramas, OEGBs, and d'uccles stay very small.

    I was told she was a possible frizzle. But now looking at pictures she must be a bantam.
