Sorry, no pics...but my white tetra (which is like a white leghorn) chick seems to be biting and sratching alot. I can see the irritated pink skin at the base of her wings. I'm getting concerned. The others are doing it too however, I don't see any irratation on them. Any input?

They are 10 days old...noticed this for about 4 days now.

I don't know the answer, but my new chicks are doing it too... could be they are just getting their new feathers... my older hens did that when they were molting.
