    Hello and :welcome
    Chicks usually all grow at different rates, this one might just be a little slow. The smaller ones sometimes catch up later on, happened with us, this little gal suddenly grew into a massive, fat hen. :lol:
    Good luck with your chicks, and enjoy the site. :)

    He/she probably is younger and requires more sleep.
