    My chicks are almost 5 weeks old and completely feathered except one has a bald spot on her chest with no signs of feathers coming in. Nothing is wrong except maybe she has a big crop during the day but it's digested at night. I looked for mites and there arnt any I don't think. Should I be concerned? Thanks! [​IMG]

    They can look pretty raggedy at that age. I'd check for mites, but otherwise, wait and see.
