    I got 3 chicks about 4 weeks ago. 2 seems to be growing fine but 1 has odd feather growth and bald spots. Is something wrong? [​IMG]

    Are they all the same breed? By any chance was this one supposed to be a frizzle?

    Same question; breed? It could be male. Slow feathering is a male trait in some breeds...

    Yes it turns out all 3 were male so we were able to take them back to place that raises them. This time we got six other babies so hopefully we get some girls this time [​IMG] thanks guys!
