    So our chicks arrived from My Pet Chicken a little over three weeks ago -- they were hatched on or about July 28. All have been doing wonderfully, but one of them -- a Faverolle -- is barely growing feathers while the others now look more or less like miniature versions of their eventual grown-up selves. Here's a comparison of her with our other Faverolle (she's on the left):


    She's active, holds her own at the feeder and waterer, loves to forage, and was the first girl to realize that worms are delicious. [​IMG]

    Anyone else had late featherers like this? Does she maybe need a little additional nutritional support?
