It looks like the other chicks are picking their feathers out. In an adult chicken, I would suggest an apron, but I don't know in a chick. Try providing activities for the other chicks so they have something else to do.

ok only hatched 2 chicks so only one other chick, the one chick in the picture is the smaller chick - they seem to get on with each other but some squawks in night under heat plate - as the cage is on my bed
