    We have three RIRs, we think they are all roosters. The smallest has bald spots on his neck and under his wings. Is this okay? He seems fine otherwise. We are planning to move them all to the coop this weekend (we have 11 all together). Will he be okay?

    Yeah he's a rooster. Those are just spots where the feathers haven't grown in yet.
