Help needed with Cornish x chicks

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
This is my first time raising Cornishx chicks. I got these about three weeks ago from Tractor Supply. The chicks are getting big of course, however they look like they are partially bald? I don't really see any pecks on them. I can't find any bugs either. They are not as bald as yesterday if I remember right smile.png. So are they just filling in from loosing baby feathers, or do I have a concern here? I don't remember my chicks being "bald", unless they were in molt. But I've never had meat birds before. Of course, I Wasn't intending on getting meat birds either, but the guy at the store told me they were White Rocks... hmmmm
Anyway H E L P PLS smile.png

Ps any clue on how many roos in here?

It's actually pretty normal for Cornish X to have bald spots. Their bodies grow faster than the feathers can grow in to cover. They also tend to have brittle or sparse feathering, for easier plucking.
