Hi guys another strange question from the newbie conf665 I have 12 keets , they range in age from 9 to 11 weeks old. One of them is half the size of the others and it is not the youngest either. Any idea why ? and is it anything to worry about ? seems otherwise happy and healthy.
Thanks

Will it still grow the same size when fully grown or do the little ones stay smaller than the other.
