He looks perfectly healthy to me; perhaps he really is a dwarf. Very cute at any rate!

I have one Partridge Rock that's half-size. She seems OK though. Be interesting to see if she eventually catches up or not.

Our little runt is a roo. Imagine that. Looks like we got 2 roos out of 5 chicks. Not bad odds, considering. He is still tiny and not feathering out as quickly as his siblings.
