Bare spot on neck

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hi,

 

I have a 2 1/2 month old Red Star pullet with a bare spot on her neck.  The other chick we have doesn't have one, so I wasn't sure if I should be concerned.  The spot appears on each side. ?

 

 

Thanks!

If that's the case, this hen is more mature that her ear lobes are larger spots

Why wouldn't they be covered with feathers?  I haven't seen similar spots on other birds.  Maybe I should start applying sunscreen. :)
