I just had 3 Sussex eggs hatch over the weekend, and one of the chicks is really fat. She was in the biggest egg of the batch, and she was so big that it took her almost 2 days to be able to hoist her big butt up off the floor.She was just waddling till today when she can finally stand all the way up. Do you think she is deformed, or just a big chick? Her legs seems spaced wide apart, but they go straight down, so I don't think she is spraddle-legged. They hatched Saturday night/ Sunday morning. Is this normal for one to be that much bigger than the others at hatching.
