    Is this normal?
    See the very red bits on this 6 week old BR's head? I have four chicks, and this one has this redness around her head, the others don't. But sometimes it isn't red like that, just normal pink. Seems to get red when she's excited, foodtime especially.
    What do you think?

    Thanks!

    yeah, probably normal. Might have red stripes on the legs too. It's an excitement/hormonal thing.
