    My meat birds are 5 1/2 weeks old and they have no feathers under their wings and around their bottoms. Is this normal?

    I am on my first batch so I can't truly say what is normal but I did notice with my batch that are coming up on 8 weeks in a few days that the feathers are sparse on the bottom side and it seems like they can't keep up with their body growth sometimes. The belly's have a lot less than their topsides.

    Definitely normal.
