    I have 2 red sex links (2 wks old) with bald strips on their bellies. I have posted in Emergencies, etc (with pics). . . but no one has answered. Can anyone here help?

    Are they picking at their bellies? Do the bellies look like they are raw? Could it be mites?

    [​IMG] I am not sure. Hopefully someone will have an idea for you.
