I don't think that Production Reds are fast growing in the sense of broiler type birds. It's just a cross between a Rhode Island Red and a New Hampshire Red. They are just on a normal, non-medicated chick starter (I threw away the bag and can't remember the brand). They also have the electrolyte and vitamin packets in their water (nipple waterer, so it's clean).

I have 9 chicks, 3 different varieties. This particular pullet is probably the smallest. They have free-choice feed, and usually go through about a quart/24 hours. Should I take away their feed at night?

She didn't appear to have any problems at all before today. I did briefly put them into a tote this morning while I cleaned their brooder, and I'm wondering if the newspaper on the floor and the commotion of being moved caused an injury. What other information can I provide to give you a better idea? More pictures/video?
