    I have two 10 week old Gold Laced Wyandotte chicks. "Sage" was very sick at about three weeks old (to the point of not standing up) but with a lot of help recovered.

    Ever since she has had such little growth, her feathers have hardly grown and she is tiny. Topaz, the other one is double in size and has lots of feathers. Could Sage be stunted? Will she always be smaller?

    Most likely, yes. I think she is ADORABLE!!!! Just keep a close eye on her with the roos or the flock, also because she could make a tasty treat for a midnight sulker!!

    Gosh she is adorable! It looks like she is still shedding her baby feathers, so she may just need to catch up. I wouldn't be surprized if she was stunted, but what a little cutie!
