Hey all,

I have a chick that I'm a little worried about, seems physically smaller than the others and also has had a couple episodes of sort of pasty butt. The episodes don't seem to be a "full" pasty butt, just a little built up around the vent (or maybe I'm just catching it early?) but her feathers are also different from the other babies. They seem to be growing in patchy/weirdly. I've attached a few pics and would love some thoughts on whether this is normal feather growth or if possibly something is wrong with this baby.
If something is wrong, should I try to isolate some to feed more? They are all on a medicated chick starter and it doesn't appear she is bullied/she seems to be able to eat when she wants.
