I am thinking that this is normal as they are beginning to get some little bitty tail feathers....but, they are two weeks old and when we had them out to play today, DD and I noticed two have chest stubble and look a little balding. At first I thought it was because I placed their waterer inside a little Tupperware bowl in an effort to minimize the water mess. But when we put them back I watched for a while and they can defiantly reach the waterer without rubbing their chests up against the plastic bowl.

Should I be concerned?
