I bought 6 chicks at a Silent Auction they are about 5 weeks now. I have one that has been a runt since the beginning, she is a little slower than the others, and has been named Baby from the start, she is a barred rock. She is getting bigger but not the same rate as the others, she seems to be a loaner, not because the others pick on her, but by choice. She moves around a little but stands or sits in the same place a lot and closes her eyes a lot. I can reach in and pick her up with out her running, but I have handled her the most too. She will perch on my hand. I have seen her eat and drink. I unexpectedly lost a duckling the other day... I tried not to be too upset about it, but I am afraid I will come home and find her dead. Is she just a runt and will catch up eventually or is there something more wrong? Thanks for your help.
