I have 8 6/7 week old chicks. 3 are Americanas, 2 Golden Laced Wyandottes, 1 Plymouth Barred Rock, 1 Black Sex Link, and finally 1 Jersey Giant - she’s my issue. Their feathers are coming in nicely all except for her. I’m not sure if I’m overreacting or if there’s a reason why she looks like this. Any thoughts would be appreciated!!!

    Some feather out more slowly than others. I don't currently see anything wrong. Make sure they are on a good chick starter so they have what they need to grow those feathers.

    You can look about the head, you can generally see mites moving about. Tome it just look like it's growing out of it's feathers and is trying to grow new ones in.
