    I posted last week about how our sweet little Clementine is teeny compared to her siblings. I was quite worried about her then because she seemed a bit lethargic too. But, she seems FINE now! She is just as energetic as everyone else and eats, drinks, and poops like she should. However, she is STILL tiny. She's officially smaller than the 2 Brahmas we have who are 1.5 weeks younger. She is getting feathers but a LOT slower than the others.

    Do you think she'll always be small? Or will she catch up eventually? Anyone have experience with this?

    i have a runt just like that and shes a mounth old she was always sleepy but i gave her this herbal wormer and she's perked up really well. She knows how to get out the box like all the others but she has always been small. it might just be she'll be a bit smaller than the rest or she will catchup .. [​IMG]
