so I have 7 chickens I got, a lot of the paint babies had problems, but the three partridge were okay for the most part. I’ve had to clean the ones booty everyday from pasty butt, but other than her they have been fine. It has been two weeks however, and she is not growing at all. The other two have surpassed her in size, it’s hard to see in the photos but does anyone have any advice or know why this could be happening?

Could be a runt, and will eventually catch up/mostly catch up to the others, or it could have something wrong with it internally/genetically that will eventually kill it. Is it active and eating?
She eats more than the others do, she’s constantly eating, but she has barely changed since the day I got her. They were all hatched only a day apart as well. Her parents are the same as the other two partridges too. She is starting to get her big girl wings like the others, but she is so much smaller it’s barely noticeable.

Update: so she is stillll not growing. She is still the same size, but her feathers are starting to come in on her wings like the others. It’s honestly crazy, but here are some pics there is her in my hand vs the other born the same time in my hand.
