But is there something wrong with our chick? My husband checked on them and they were fine. I got home an hour later and the chick seemed to have some raw spots under the wing and a brown spot on the chest. She appeared wet so I don’t know if she was picking or playing in the water. She’s about a week old. She’s in a large container with 5 other chicks and 2 ducks. They are all about a week old.

    I see spots where down is shedding before feathers fill in and what looks like brown feathering coming in on the chest....

    Yeah we thought maybe she was just losing fluff for the feathers to come in, but it freaked us out. We separated her for a couple hours while we did some research and she YELLED at us the whole time. Lol.
