I have 3 baby silkies that I hatched. They are about 2 and a half weeks old. One is growing rapidly, one is in the middle, and one honestly seems like a runt. The largest one was born a day before the other 2. The “runt” was the only one that hatched properly, the other 2 needed help. The weight difference is worrying to me. However, it is eating and drinking, is the first one to go for treats, and has feather development like the other 2. Nothing necessarily seems wrong with it but I’m concerned. Also, it does seem to make rapid chirping sounds sometimes which the other 2 do not really do. It acts normal while doing this though, so it doesn’t seem like it’s distressed or hurt. Any info please?
