    Africa - near the equator
    If you are feeding them starter / chick feed then they should grow accordingly.

    I am
    I asked the lady at the farm I got her from today
    she said some do that but it should be ok
    I watch her close
    at first she didn't get up to eat with the others I had to push her a little
    now she is keeping up
    what could I do to boost her up a bit ?

    We have some that are just smaller, though they get the exact feed and are not picked on. Some just are slower growers, just like people [​IMG]

    Different breed/parentage? The seven Americanas I got are all the same age but range wildly in size. So long as they are happy and healthy otherwise I wouldn't worry too much about it.
