    Hi everyone. I just hatched my first bunch of BO chicks. I have 16 total and one seems to be much smaller than the rest. They hatched on the 20th of April and the rest all have a good amount of feathers. This one still has a lot of downy feathers. Should I be concerned? Someone told me BO roos take longer to get their feathers then the pullets. Is this true?
