Cornish Cross

9 days old. Drinking water fine, eating fine, sleeping fine, pooping of course. My question is that their bellies are balding and their wing elbows are balding some is this normal? Is this part of the molting process they are having feathers coming in very quickly.

the balding is normal. Part of it is that they lay down so much, and personally I think part of it is they grow so fast the feathers aren't thick enough to cover all that skin lol. But most CX have spotty feathering. Makes plucking easier, too!

In the tractor and doing great. Placed the dogs igloo in with regular light bulb heat since we are still in the 40s at night. Their indoctrination for first night was an awesome lightning and thunder storm with lots of rain.
