    The chicks are doing so well. So I think.

    Except there is one( who happened to be the one who I was slightly worried about at first but then is fine), who has a bare butt. She had some gunk on it so I wiped it off with a warm wet paper towel Just now, when I checked her again, there was not fluff! Just bare skin!

    Is that weird/bad??

    I've had a few like that, they feather out of it pretty fast so no worries.

    I had a few that ended up like that after I cleaned their poopy butts. They survived just fine. They are now 4 weeks old and doing great! [​IMG]
