Hey have a young bantam, 1 of 5 in a mixed lot of 27 and shes missing feathers!?!1
To clarify 1 of 5 bantams w/ a total of 27 in my flock, only one w/ this issue
Hi Welcome To BYC
She looks larger than a bantam to me Is she a Barred Rock?
It looks like normal juvenile molting. I see new growth (pin feathers coming in) and no scabs from where she is plucked.
They can look bare and bit funny when they start losing their down and the hard feathers are coming in. Keep watch that no one is picking at her and that she is eating/drinking fine.
I was told theyre bantams,but is there a way to tell? Is there anything i should do special for her? Or just wait it out
LOL, how old are they?
Barred Rocks do come in bantam size, so it's possible.
As for anything special? Is she eating, drinking, pooping, active and not getting bullied/picked on?
Yea totally the same as the rest except for the feathers, theyre about a month and a week old
But i do have those 5 "bantams" and the rest are leghorn and all same age and size
