I have a puller that is approximately 12 weeks old. All of the other pullets are twice the size of this pulley. She still has chick fuzz on her head put is otherwise healthy. She eats and can fly but is being picked on during the flock pecking order. Any ideas besides separating her?

This could be a result of her being low in the pecking order or things in her enviorment. When my pullets were 12w I am pretty sure that some of mine still had chick fuzz. Make sure she gets a balanced diet with (grower feed) and greens. Check her over to make sure ther is nothing wrong on the outside.

Separating her would be a last resort, depending on why she is having problems.

Can you post a pic of her and one or two of her flock mates?
How many birds total and how much space(feet by feet) do they have to live in?
What and how exactly are you feeding?
