Hello! I have 3 EE chicks, all around 2 months old. They were 4 weeks old when we got them because they were the only ones left over in the feed store. One of them has always been small and it didn't seem abnormal at first since size varies from male to female, and it wasn't super noticeable. As they've grown and become more active, running and jumping around their pen, I've noticed she always holds back. She's eating and drinking fine although she's slightly thinner than the other two. Because of her size, she's at the bottom of the pecking order and sometimes the other chicks will step on her when she's sitting. She stands more fluffed up, sits a lot, and doesn't seem too balanced. I feel bad not knowing how I can help her become stronger. she's still eating and peeping like a normal chick but seems weak. anything I can do??
