    I bought my chicks at a local feed store, black stars.
    When I first got them one had a small bald spot on each side of its body.I asked on this board about it and someone said that some chicks feather out more slowly.
    Now they are two weeks old and this one has now gone almost completely bald on its back.I do not see it picking at it or anyone else bothering it.I have no idea what is going on, but it has gotten worse over the weekend.
