    9 days old. Feathers coming in. Driving fine, eating fine, sleeping fine. Molting process? Some the belly is balding and all the wing elbows balding. Any ideas, or suggestions?

    Cornish X often have bare bellies from lying around a lot, though that is usually in the 4 week + age group. As for the wings, do you mean they feathered in and the feathers are falling out? Have you looked them over for mites?

    There is also a Meat Bird forum. You may want to ask there too.
