Okay. I'm probably going to sound stupid. My boyfriend bought me a chick for easter and I hate to think of not being able to care for it properly. I've got it a lamp to keep it warm, I give it lots of food, clean the bedding and lots of water (but in a shallow dish so it won't drown and I keep it really clean). But I just have a few questions... First one being, how can you tell if it's a rooster or a hen? Then, it's got this bald spot on its neck and I keep finding down in it bedding... is that normal? I mean... is it losing down and starting to grow feathers? It doesn't have any feathers yet except on its wings. Also... is there anything I'm missing? I'm really trying to grow a healthy chicken and I'd hate to be doing it wrong... Sorry for silly questions, it's just that I don't know much about this. But I'd like to! I'd appreciate any help. Thanks.
