    This little one has me stumped. She/he was shipped on 7/18, so it's a few days over 3 weeks old. Seems slow to get feathers? And small? I had ordered 3 EE's and received 4 dead EE's and this sole survivor. My hand is pretty small, I'm a fairly petite woman, so that gives you an idea of it's size. Runt maybe?

    Any ideas on what bit could be?
