We hatched 19 chicks last tuesday. One of the chicks is different than the rest. It is an easter egger, and it took a longer time hatching than the rest. Now they are a few days old ant that one chick is way smaller than the rest, and has shorter down, and less feathering on its wings. It seams really long legged and shakes its head and falls over a lot. It is eating and drinking good, I just don't know what is wrong with it.

It looks a little deformed. As long as it is eating and drinking and the other ones aren't picking on it then it should be fine. only time will tell. Some times you have to cull chicks if its deformed its deformed.
