I don't see anything alarming (why is the chick pink?). Chicks can get some large bare spots sometimes as they go through juvenile molts (there will be several) until they have their first full set of adult feathers. Sometimes they can be really ratty looking, individual birds, and different breeds can vary. There may be periods of a lot of preening of feathers as they remove feather shafts from new feathers. As they get older you may see a lot of feather dust and loose feathers laying around at times. If they are eating, drinking, pooping normally, behavior is normal, then that is likely all it is.
