Hello everyone, i have five chicks all diff breeds. My Delaware is just not as active as the others. She spends much more time under the lamp and while she does eat and drink (and is getting plump) she kind of lumbers around and often chooses to eat and drink while sitting. She doesn’t seem to have spradle leg or anything visible like pasty butt. however her vent seems slightly protracted. I’m worried because she’s continuing to fall behind in her behavior and development as compared to the others. Any suggestions are much appreciated!

From your description and the picture, she doesn't appear ill to me. There's such a thing as failure to thrive, though, so you may just have to keep a special eye on her and make sure she's eating and drinking properly.

Thank you so much. I did give save a chick for a couple of days but no change. I will keep my special mama eye on her :)
