Just Food City Chicken Meetup NYC Message Board General Discussion › Barred Plymouth Rock chick

Barred Plymouth Rock chick

Hi Everyone,
This may be a totally silly question but I am new to chickening. I have three chicks -- a Rhode Island Red, a white Plymouth Rock and a Barred Plymouth Rock. The barred is quite a bit smaller than the other two, growing pretty slowly. She seems to have the same amount of feathering as the others, but is definitely not growing as fast. I don't need to be worried, do I?

Is it a bantam? I have RIR and Barred Rocks and they grew about the same rate. The other thing is that standard size Barred Rocks are larger birds than the RIR b/c they are meat/egg birds, so she should be larger. How old are they? Is she eating/drinking? Her back end clear? Any other symptoms? Could just be a smaller bird if everything else seems normal. Could be she's a bantam. If you see other symptoms (not eating, drinking, acting funny, etc.) could be a deficiency. . .
