My speckled sussex are 4 and 1/2 weeks old, and My EEs that were hatched out on the 1st of april are bigger than my two Sussex! The Sussex are feathered out most of the way with just alittle fuzz around the head and neck, The EEs are 10 days younger than them and most are bigger than them and some are the same size, the sussex act perfectly normal if a little naughty at times. They get around all too well, eat and drink normally, do everything all good little chicks do except GROW! They are supposed to be Large Foul size but gee they are so small compared to the EEs. They both had trouble hatching out of there shells, but both are fine health wise now. Are my babies always going to be small or will the catch up at some point! The larger of the two little sussex preferrs to be with the chicks that were hatched out on the 5th everytime I go to check on her/him I find him cuddled up asleep with the smallest babies and I fish him out and put her back in her brooder with her sister and the EEs, and i turn my back and she is back in with the little ones , I don't know why she does this nobody picks on her if anything she might be a little bit of a bully herself though I have never seen her being mean to the littler babies. Any Ideas why they are so small and will they grow, Anybody out there have Speckled sussex that grew soooooo slowwwwly?
