    Wanted to update and say that I think the vitamins are working with the chick foot growth that I posted a few days back. Thanks for the advice to supplement. I couldn't find anything with Biotin in it though...so I am using what I could find by Durvet.

    Wanted to ask about the chicks stunted growth. She is much smaller than the other Buff Oprington that I have...her eyes are much smaller as you can see in the above photo. Her feathers are growing in much slower and she weighs less. Should I be concerned about this? Do you think she will turn out okay and lay eggs like the rest?

    She looks like she's still feeling a little under the weather. Sometimes there is a lot of size variation. I think she has a good chance of doing well, if she makes it through the next several weeks.
