    I have a coming two week old chick with a bald spot - I can't see mites (are they visible to the naked eye?). What should I do about it? I have the chick in with six other chicks (3 RIR, 3 guineas) and I would hate to have them catch whatever it is.

    Thanks

    I have a chick with two bald spots on her hip bones. She was that way after hatching, I think she lost her down when the membrane got a little shrink wrapped on her. As she is growing, the bald spot is too. I think once she gets her feathers, all will be fine.
