    Welcome!!

    I do not know his history, but I have seen the half naked chicks a lot and most were kept in brooders to long that were to hot. Maybe not in this case?

    I hadn't thought of that. We purchased him that way because he was a runt and was being picked on, I have a soft spot for them.
