    Hi my little chicky is missing some feather and has a bump and was bleeding a little bit. We put some spray on him that we got at tsc that was said to help. We just noticed this today. She lives with 8 other chickies that are between 6-8 weeks old. Is this normal or should we have her checked out thank you

    Well we put some purple lotion on her and she doesn't like that, but she is eating a lot. We haven't seen her drink yet and I bought her some electrolytes save a chick

    Well she is doing better, her cut has gone down a lot. However she keeps pulling out her feathers, I have seen a few pin feathers where she has been picking on her chest but her back is still bald with only a small bit coming in. She is separated from the other 8 but I think she is causing a lot of the feather loss. Also she is smaller than the rest of them could she be not getting enough nutrition?
