I actually have 3 chicks I'm concerned with- 2 have the same problem and another is different. Hang in there with me while I explain. One chick that I've been watching seems to be "balding" in certain areas. She is a Black Sex Link and I have 2 of them (same age), and the other looks nothing like this one, as far as baldness goes. I don't know if it's just the feathering process- losing fuzz and waiting for feathers to grow in- but I haven't noticed my other birds looking quite this bad. She is about 2 1/2 weeks old. Next I have a Buff Orp and a Silver Laced Wyandotte (or Australorp- I'm sorry, I need to look up the breed pictures again, because I forgot which is which ) They are both 3 weeks old and missing tail feathers and I noticed because their rear end was bloody. Not near the vent, just the tail area and a little on the tips of the wings where they had touched the tail area. Are they being picked on or is something else going on? Here are some pics: First the "balding" sex link Then the two with tail problems I know this was a lot to post in one topic, so thank you to any of you who looked at the whole post. I had noticed the balding one yesterday or the day before, but the two with the missing tail feathers I just saw today when I was cleaning the brooder. I thought I might as well post it all together. Thanks again!
