I have a light Brahma chick who is I think 3 weeks old? (She was supposedly a day old when we got our chicks but she and a few others already had some big tail feathers and huge wing feathers)
Anyway, her butt is bald. There’s another one that has this too, just less bald. None of the others are picking at them, are they going to stay bald?

Thank you!
The feathers should fill in at the next molt. There are a couple of molts as they grow
