I am new to chickens. I have been reading this forum for a while to get the basics of chickens. About three weeks ago we got 6 chicks. 2 buff Orpington pullets, 2 Easter eggers pulleys,1 silkie, and one crested (both straight run) The crested and the silkie are a few days older (less than a week according to the feed store) than the others who were just a few days old when I got them. The crested seems to have some bald/raw looking spots on her (I hope it is a her) head. Is this normal feathers coming in or does this look like somebody is pecking on her. I have not seen much pecking by the others but do not spend hours on end with them either. If it is pecking damage is there something I should do to help her out.
