Greetings, I'm just barely past my first year of chicken keeping, and have learned quite a bit. However, there is so much more to learn. My New Hampshire Red has always been my smallest chicken. We even nick named her "Daint," but her real name is Rusty. From what I've read, New Hampshire Reds aren't necessarily a small breed. She's recovering from egg yolk peritonitis, so is still underweight. Her "sisters" (flockmates: Plymouth Barred Rock, Black Australorp, Brown Leghorn) are all much heavier, even before her recent illness. Is it common for New Hampshire Reds to be dainty?
