I have two nine month old Araucana bantams. I am not really familiar with the breed because they are my first. One of them seems quite a bit bigger than the other to me just looking at her. I am not sure is she is smaller or the other one is bigger...Or if they are both within normal range. They both seem equally active and eat well. I haven't noticed any weird poo...but twice now I have had to clean poo stuck to her rear feathers. It isn't on her vent at all. That is completely clear. I wasn't really worried about either thing before. I just figured the poo must have stuck at night when she was sitting on top nest boxes. But after the second time and thinking about how much smaller she seems I was wondering if I should be worried....
