    I have 14 2.5weeks old guinneas, and all but one are normal size and pretty much fully feathered....

    My little runt is still the size of a 3-4 day old keet and just has a couple wing feathers. Not all the back and full wing feathers the others have. He eats fine, drinks fine, and seems to keep up with the others in the pen...hes just a midget. Is this typical of a flock to have a runt?

    Good Question... possibly... as long as hes growing and doesnt have any special needs Id be interested in how he grows up along the rest. He just might get a growth spurt and catch up. I wonder what the others will say.... [​IMG] [​IMG]
