    I think for 13 weeks she looks just fine. Maybe she IS hatchery quality but she needs more time to fill out.

    My flock has some slow growing breeds and given time most fill out just fine.

    If you got them to show them or for breeding then MAYBE she isn't the best quality.
    If they are for pets/eggs laying then I wouldn't worry to much.

    I still say white rock not leghorn. She has more growing to do since she is young.

    I have had BA that were much different in size. Little Rue weighed a full pound less then her hatch mate Kanga. In my current batch of BA chicks for example some carry the tail up and some down, 2 have long backs and necks. Just hatchery stock for laying hens/pets. Still good birds for my purposes.
