Hello! So, we're new to raising chickens and we've had our little flock for a little over a month. When we purchased the chicks, they were all relatively the same size, one (named Beeg Egg lol) was a little larger than the others (also not this was a random selection process including multiple breeds). One month later and Beeg Egg is now roughly three times larger than her sisters. She is always found with her head in the feeder or foraging. Other than nighttime when food is removed, she is eating. She seems to walk okay, when she actually walks, and can fly out of the brooder to go to the coop during the daytime. Her landings, however, look awkward and usually are quite hard. Could she be overeating? Or is she just older than the others, or maybe a significantly larger breed? Pics show the drastic difference in her size. Trust me, you'll know which one I'm talking about immediately!) Thanks so much!
