    I'm new to chickens - I have 2 barred rock and 2 Rhode Island Red chicks. Three are eating, drinking, pooping normally. I have one that has a bare butt, and is getting some poop stragglers. She eats and drinks, and is quite fiesty. Any idea why she might have a bare butt???

    It doesn't look abnormal to me, it's just missing some down, almost like it grew out of them. Feathers should be growing in soon.

    She is the biggest, and has the most feathers elsewhere. Just the only one missing a big patch of down.
