Hi, this is my first time raising chickens and we recently got three chicks. We got them when they were two weeks and now they are three weeks. My Buff Orpington chicken has a strange bald spot on her chest and I'm worried she may be sick. And advice?

I don't see how, our brooder box is indoors and stays within the 80's. Any other ideas? and if it is a burn then is there a way to treat it?

It doesn't look red or irritated. I tend to agree with 'chickens really' on this one, it looks like the down has moved over to make room for the next batch of feathers. Young chicks seem to be in a constant state of molting until they get several months under their belt and are closing in on 'maturity'. By all means, I'd keep an eye on it 'just to be sure', but I wouldn't be overly worried about it right now, since it doesn't look like it's bothering the chick.
