One of my chicks (3 weeks) has almost no feathers on her back, and where she does it looks like they grew in incorrectly. Is there anything to do to fix this? please let me know!!

We need to see a picture. Please remove the chick from under a red lamp before taking photo.

Sometimes a bald spot to the chick keeper is really just a thin patch of down. So we'd need a photo to judge.

Make sure you don't have a pluckers in the group. Some birds pull out the feathers of others. What feed are you using? Add more protein.
