Just noticed one of my girls has bald spots, any ideas on what this could be?

Hello there,

My husband and I are new chicken owners and we have four lovely ladies. None are laying yet but should be soon! We noticed an issue with our 24 week old Black Australorp today when we picked her up and noticed she had significant bald spots under her wings.This particular chicken has always been the goofy looking runt of the bunch (chickens are not related but raised together) but while our other three are thriving and looking big and beautiful and healthy, she seems to have not grown one bit since we got her.

They have their own coop but free range all day. They all eat and run around together and all seem healthy. I’m very confused as to what’s wrong and just want her to get better and feel ok! If there is something I should be worried about, where do I go from there? Find a vet that sees chickens? Thanks I’m advance!

She’s growing pin feathers, they are still coming in. She is a pretty girl .
Interesting, is that common at her age for her breed? Or do you think she is maybe younger than we were told? Like I mentioned our other three (different breeds) are around the same age and look nothing like her!
