Chick Missing Feathers

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
hi guys. I have a BR chick who's about 5 weeks old. today I noticed she has a spot on her neck that dosent have any feathers. I don't know if it's mites or other chicks pecking her? her behavior is normal and she isn't acting irritated. and suggestions or comments would be appreciated. thanks!

Please post a picture. Chicks often go through ugly stages where they are molting and lose feathers leaving bare patches. So it is possible that is what is going on with your chick.

It looks fine. I wouldn't be worried. Sometimes it takes a while to grow the feathers in. :)
