    I saw that one of my chicks had a "clear" (isn't really clear, but has a clear color) bubble (guess that's what it is?) with orange dots/specs on his/her skin right on top of her right wing, and I'm wondering what this could possibly be?

    I thought I was looking at a coming feather with orange dots on top, but I'm pretty sure it isn't. They are about 2 weeks old.

    Hmm, I wish I could help!

    Maybe someone else with a little more experience will chime in though!

    Best wishes, hope it's looking better soon!

    Not sure about the bubble, but look closer, could the spots be mites?

    I just went out there and checked, and seem there was nothing too weird about the chicken - Maybe I'm seeing things. I'll take a much closer look tomorrow morning.
