    I have a weird question about my new baby chick. She is 2 weeks old. I got her from a farm that raises them for a chicken factory. Anyway....she is getting much bigger now and is very active, but she is losing her baby fuzz and has a lot of bare skin. She looks horrible. Her wing feathers are coming in but the rest of her look pretty rough. She eats and drinks plenty so i don't think she's sick, but I wasn't sure if it was normal for them to get bare at that age. Thanks for the help!![​IMG]
