    How old are your chicks and why do you think they are not growing? Can you link to pics?
    Generally they will look fully grown at around 4 months but some breeds take longer to mature than others.

    They look to be a fine size for 4 weeks old, I wouldn't worry.
    They are all cockerels by the way in case you didn't know.

    Hi and :welcome from Ohio. So glad you joined. You should be feeding them a chick starter. It comes in a crumble form, you won't see any corn in it. You can take pics of the chicks by themselves and post them in the What Breed/Gender and you should get some ID help there. thumbsup
