small chick - Teazel - 07-08-2017

I have two female legbar chicks about two and a half weeks old.   One is thriving and growing well, the other is much smaller and breaths more quickly.   Her wing feathers are enormous compared with her body.    She is eating and drinking ok, but just doesnt seem as active as the other one.   Her poo is ok and no blood that I can see.   Any ideas,   I thought I might give her some scrambled egg.   A lot of people say probiotics but how do you feed them,  or do they just mean yoghurt.

as i wouldnt know how much probiotic powder to give a wee chick i would give it live yogurt.
