I have raised a lot of bantams and a lot of standard chicks, but this is the first time I've brooded them together. I know the bantams always seem to take longer to grow, but I'm just struck by how truly massive the standards are whereas the bantams are still super tiny, like so: They are all the same age, a few days shy of 2 weeks in this pic. All of them are super active, healthy and lively, but they seem to be growing in slow motion. Is this normal? The black one in front is even smaller than the other bantams, but it also seems perfectly happy. The only exception to my tiny bantams is this guy, the chick on the right, which is supposedly a d'Uccle yet is the size of the standard barred rock & australorp next to it. Talk about confusing, it is roughly twice the size of the other d'Uccles... I'm not sure if it's just a quality thing or what. They're from the Ideal d'Uccle assortment and so far I haven't been happy with the quality. I ordered 10 and have 6 left. All 4 Porcelains I was sent were super weak and died, but these have all stayed healthy and happy despite their tiny size. Any input is appreciated!
