I have two tiny chicks that are about three weeks old. One hasn't grown any and the other grew a little bit.They are black with a little bit of yellow on their chests.
Is there a breed like this possibly game chicks , or are they runts?

Survived our first winter in Montana. Girls did well even when it got to -22.
Could they be bantams? Some chicks just don't grow but it's rare. They just fail to thrive. I lost one a few years ago. It was always behind in growth and about 8 weeks old it just died. There was probably some genetic problem. I won't guess as to what breed your chicks might be. I'm not familiar with how chicks look.
