Is this normal???????? Please help ASAP!!!!!!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
HELP! I'm really worried about my chicks. They are 2 days old and i Just noticed today that they have lost a LOT of feathers on their wings. I've only done three hatches and this is the first time with black chicks- so it might be normal and I just never noticed before. But I can't find any pics online that are similar. Please advise ASAP as I'd planned on bringing them to visit a friends classroom tomorrow, but I don't want to do it if they are sick.
Thanks
Jill

I'm not seeing any feather loss - I'm seeing the new feathers coming in. Everything looks normal to me smile.png

Looks normal to me also.  Please be careful you do not stress the little ones out by taking them to a classroom to early.  This could be away to expose them to unnecessary viruses.  Kids always seem to have running noses.

THANKS to those who replied!!!  It was such a relief to hear it was normal.  I must not have noticed it with the other two hatches!  Feel much better!   :D
