Query about one of my chicks

1667 Views 10 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  Renae
I have 3 baby chicks that are 4 weeks old. I have been handrearing them for 2 weeks. Two of them are growing well and I have taken them out of their brooder and are in a small cage. But the 3rd little one is a bit of a concern. He is only half the size of the others and doesnt have much of an appetite. Has anyone had this problem before and what do you think might be the cause?

My Snickers had a slow start. Are you weighing them daily? As long as he keeps putting on weight he'll probably be ok, some babies are just a bit slower - and its quite often the youngest. :)
