    Hi, I have a 5-month old hen named Pair, I hatched her last year with my bator, but she grew up to be very small (she is an RIR). but she is only about 2/3 the size of the otherhens, Is this a genetic defect? just wondering.

    P.S. I only have RIRs

    Could be genetic or maybe she's a bantam.
