    I was having doubts about this little one. I have two other chicks the same age and they were growing fantastically, but the little Wyandotte wasn't growing at all. It has also been peeping very loudly 24/7 and couldn't drink very well. Every time it tried drinking it would end up almost choking kind of. Almost like it was gasping for air after taking a drink. However she was eating just fine.

    Anyone know what could have possibly gone wrong? I am assuming it might not have been a good hatch for this chick and it was somewhat under developed? She was TINY for being a standard chick. Unfortunately I didn't get a picture of her.
