Not sure if this goes here, or in the chicks section... Mods, feel free to move it.
I hatched out 50 + chicks a week ago. Only lost the one to the at the time, so we are doing good now. They are all thriving.
However, one little guy has the strangest down. It almost looks singed, or burnt???? The down is very short, and almost prickly. his wing feathers are coming in fine, as far as I can tell, but his head, back, and neck are not fluffy like the others. At first, I thought he just didn't fluff up correctly in the bator, but a week later, and after studying him awhile, his down is wrong???
Anybody know what's going on?
