Would y'all mind looking at this birds beak and right above it is a little red and bald. Maybe it's the breed because the other two that look like her are also the same way just not red. Any ideas?

Picture quality is bad.

Do you keep your birds in a wire pen?

If so it could be some chicken killing varmint testing the pen and your birds are either flying or running into the wire in panic.

Or it could be that the chicks are testing the boundaries of the pecking order.

In the latter case it seems that the chick who looks the worst for ware usually ends up on top.

Thank you! I only have my phone to take the pictures. They're in a wooden brooder still. So no predators
