    Two of my 2-3 yr old cornish x rocks seem to be loosing a lot of their belly fur.
    The other birds not so much. Is this common or anything I need to worry about?

    No it's nothing to worry about. They are just fat hogs that are always laying down. Just wait until you butcher them they will be completely bald on their bellies. Good luck!
