    Three weeks or so ago we got 6 chicks. Our first! They are growing quickly and all seem healthy, active and hungry. One chick has a naked butt. An area about the size of a quarter did not feather out, not even peach fuzz. Otherwise it seems fine. The area looks like healthy skin, no inflammation, no bug, it eats, drinks, runs around and poops an incredible amount just like the rest of them. Is this common or normal?
