    Hi,

    I have a 2 1/2 month old Red Star pullet with a bare spot on her neck. The other chick we have doesn't have one, so I wasn't sure if I should be concerned. The spot appears on each side. ?

    Thanks!

    Those appear to be her ear lobes :)

    If that's the case, this hen is more mature that her ear lobes are larger spots

    Why wouldn't they be covered with feathers? I haven't seen similar spots on other birds. Maybe I should start applying sunscreen. :)
