    One of my 9 day old chicks has a bare rear end. Everything looks ok he just doesn't have any fur there. Anything I should worry about?

    If the chick is eating, drinking and pooping OK, I'd just keep an eye on it. Maybe one of the others is picking/pulling it's feathers out?

    I wouldn't be too worried unless the skin was irritated or there was indication of an injury. Like TispyDog said, I would keep an eye on it, but if the lil chick is only 9 days old then I would think it shouldn't be too much of a problem.
