    my baby amauracana chicks are getting what looks like new feathers but it also looks like there falling out.

    also the one that i think is the rooster is acting a lot more jumpy than usual. any ideas???

    You'd need to post pics for any definite answers. If they're really jumpy and loosing feathers out of stress there may be a snake in the coop. Normally, if there are eggs, all the hens lay on one side.
