    I have 3 RIR Chicks about 2-1/2 weeks old. On the area behind the eyes - small circle, which I assume are ears? it is 'much' darker and obvious on one than the other 2 - less fur/feathers around the area as well. She seems fine otherwise. Have others noticed this and should I be concerned?
    Thanks...
