    When I took my chicks out to the run today, I noticed my favorite chick has two small strange scabs on either side under her beak. I tried to get a picture, but she didn't want to stay still for it, so this is the best I got of one side:

    Could it just be the wattle growing in or something else? I can try to take a better pic later if that helps. Chicks are about 3 1/2 weeks.
