Here is the free exotic mystery chick... There are bald spots on his shoulders(?) as seen in the not too clear photo. Is this something to be concerned about? No one seems to be picking on him or h[er. (Guessing him since he was free) Any guesses on what kind of chicken?

It's pretty common for the roos (cockerels) to have bald spots on the wing bows, like that one does.

If I'm not mistaken - in the pic it appears to have feathering only on the outside of the legs? I'm thinking dark brahma. I have one and he's the man! Very handsome!

My two ORPs have some baldish spots here and there.. One was trying to get away from me yesterday when I picked it up and a baby feather came off.. Seems to be normal from what I've seen so far.. A mixed bag of old and new feathers..
