    I have a 2 week old Chick
    I thought at first it was one of my RIR
    but it has developed at such a different rate than my other 3 RIR
    this chick is 2 weeks old TODAY

    The first chick is also about 2/3 the size of my RIR chicks.
    they are all the same age
    thanks!

    any reason why it is so much smaller and getting feathers as such a slower rate?

    the top 3 pick are the same chick
    the bottom chick is different one.
    both taken today, and same age.
    thanks

    Some are just runty. I had a RIR pullet like that. Now, at over two years old, she's still slightly smaller than her two sisters, but a plucky, tough girl.

    Yep, looks like a RIR. Sometimes there are just runts. Not to worry.
