    Hi! I recently bought my chicks about a week ago and was informed that when I bought them, my chicks were at least a day or so old. I have a black australorp (Madeline) two silver wyandottes (Mable and Myrtle), and a golden Wyandotte (Meredith). Now, I’ve had them or almost a week and have seen these babies grow like weeds! However, I noticed that Meredith has significantly smaller wings than the rest of the babies. I was just wondering if anyone had any ideas of why she may have smaller wings?
    (I was also supposedly given only pullets and was unsure as to if that helped the case). I know the picture kinda sucks, but there she is off to the right.

    She looks like she’s few days or even a week younger from the ones on the left.

    Yes, I agree, she isn't as old so her feathers aren't as far along.
