    I bought 3 Turken chicks yesterday and one of them has flaky, peeling skin on its neck. What would cause this? Is there anything that I can do for it? They are less than a week old and only one of them has peeling skin.

    I took a picture of its neck, but I don't know how to upload a picture here because I am a brand new member.

    at the top of the page there is a link that says upload, this tool is fairly easy to use or you can include pics in your post from other websites by including the url address in your post

    Thanks mwdh1. Here is a picture of his neck. Of course, it's supposed to be "naked," but the peeling concerns me.
