Black Star - 1 week old - Missing Fuzz

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I got a black star (1 week old) which is acting normal and eating/drinking normal.

 

However, she is missing fuzz on several spots and her feathers do not look smooth like other breed that I have. 

 

Should I be concerned?

That is fairly normal to have bare spots around the shoulders. My RIR's looked like that, and within a week or two they came in normally.

Eggcessive,

Your response made me feel so much better. I thought it's got a mites problem that spreads or something. 

Thank you!

Your welcome.  If there were mites or lice, you would definitely see them on chicks. That is a good idea to check them.
