    Noticed that my two Perkins have a red wet rash on and around their necks! Any suggestions ?

    I've seen similar stuff when ducklings will peck at one another - how many little 'lings do you have? Any way to separate the afflicted ones from the others in the brooder?

    4 total. But this is the biggest of all 4. And only the one breed has the spots. I will see if separating them will help. I sure hope so!

    Sorry so late but they could be too hot or possibly just getting their feathers.
