    Here are my newest little ones- I am thinking 2 are polish, not sure of the white one- also the little white one has a bare bottom- any suggestion or ideas?

    Aw, adorable looking chicks you've got there!

    I'd just make sure that it stays clean and that the others are not pecking at the bare patches, and wait for the feathers to grow back.

    They sure are cute! Looks like the little may had a touch of pasty butt, Blue_Myst has the right idea. Keep an eye on its droppings, too, to prevent a recurrence.

    Where did they come from? I have tried to find Polish chicks locally and I always get there too late!

    I am watching him careful- he is so tiny! I got them from TSC- was surprised to see them there- split an order with the clerk since they have a 6 purchase minimum- she was thrilled since she didn't want 6 either

    I went ahead and isolated tiny, put a divider in so he can get his toosh covered with feathers.... he isn't too happy....
