Chick just hatched and has tiny growths all over it’s skin. They resemble pimples. I’ve separated it from the perfectly normal siblings and took a quick video.

So hard to get a picture! They’re all over and yes, under the tail. I was scared it was an infection but I’m now fairly certain it as something to do with skin/feather/follicle stuff. The bumps appear attached TO feathers. Almost like a human louse nit. When the chick was wet, these bumps were everywhere. They’re covered up now by fluff and seem to be positively falling off as they’ve dried out. Weird.
