    we got her yesterday and she is quite a bit smaller then all my other breeds were. She's maybe the size of a golf ball. I noticed that she went over to the food dish, which is filled with standard size chick feed, but i haven't actually seen her eating. Do i need to grind up the food a little for a chick this small?
    I've seen her drinking at least, so i know she's not dehydrated.

    I'd try that to see if it helps, or give some scrambled egg.

    i have part of a hard boiled egg in there right now. Will that work? I've also seen her playing with the dandelions that my kids gave the others.

    Any cooked egg should be ok.
