    I have black sex-link 2 week old. Some bare featherless patches on her back. She doesn't seem to be getting pecked by others, she's eating, she's drinking, maybe a little lethargic - but not much, no red spots or scratches on the bare spots. Any ideas? Thanks.

    edited because I just reread and saw she's only two weeks old.

    My only suggestions are, make sure the brooder is not too hot and the chicks are not too crowded together.
