I am new to raising chicks. I have 12 chicks that are about 2 weeks old. I noticed that one of my Buff Orpingtons wings are extremely small. The other 3 Buffs that I have have normal sized wings. Has anyone ever heard of this? It acts normal.

Hi :welcome

Glad you could join the flock! I'm afraid I've never raised buff orpingtons from chicks so I can't be of much help to you on the size of the wings. Even though your chicks are of the same breed they will will still have different rates of growth no two chicks are the same. I've certainly experienced this with my polish chicks from various hatches.

Wishing you the very best of luck with your chicks.
Enjoy BYC and all the chicken chat :frow

Just like Yorkshire Coop pointed out to you all chicks don't develop at the same rate. You will find your laying breeds won't start the same time either. Enjoy watching them grow, they will be big before you know it.
