    Alright, here are some pics with my 9 RIR rooster chicks (cockerels, I know!). They don't stay together, I just put them in for size comparison. They RIR's are just over a week, they Lavender Orps are three weeks. They should be bigger.....but they are pretty!

    One is a little weaker than the others.

    They look very cute! I'm pretty sure they will have a little growth spurt! They are small though [​IMG] Keep them for a while longer and see what happens!

    You are right, but it takes a little time for them to develop the dark legs and beak.
