I'm new to the forum and to raising chickens. I did try to search before asking this, but could not find any info relating to chicks with this problem. The problem I speak of- bald spots on the bum! We just got our chicks on Tuesday. They are just a few days old and one of them is definitely the alpha already. The one who is not alpha has a growing bald spot on her bum and I am a little concerned about it. I have heard about pecking and I am worried that perhaps she is being bullied by the other chick, but I have not noticed any agressive behaviour. In fact, they really do not like being separated. They seem to really like each other. The only thing I have noticed on occasion is that the chick with the bald spot will be pecking at her own rump. Is she doing it to herself? And if so, is this a bad sign or is it normal chick behaviour? Is there anything I can do to help the spot get better? Thanks for your help!
