    I noticed some black spots on the crowns of some of my chicks, they are just over 3 weeks old. Should I be worried?

    While we are at it. Can anyone tell if they are boys or girls? Or is it still too early?

    Thanks!!!

    Looks like it got pecked by the other chicks or scratched its comb...no big deal. And I'd guess boy!
