    Every year we try and hatch our own chicks. We hatch them, they fully grow feathers, I put them in the rabbit hutch, and they stop growing. The free range chicks grow to adults but why does the ones in the rabbit hutches stop growing?

    Just a guess, but maybe there's something in the rabbit hutch, like mold, that's making them sick.
