So the no feathers on his back is normal??
I have seen that in a lot of chicks his age. One batch of chicks I raised, the whole group of 5 of one color was like that. I think it must be a genetic thing. He should get his feathers soon.

Now in an older chicken with a lot of feather loss, you think mites or molt (or feather picking). But for his age, I would say it is just a variation of normal.

Just my opinion!
