In the Brooder
- Apr 24, 2011
I have four Australops that are 5-6 weeks old. They are almost fully feathered. Two look great. The other two have ugly spots at the base of their tails. Pictures are below. At first I thought this was just the last area where feathers are growing in, but I'm becoming concerned that it could be a skin condition or that they are being pecked by the other birds (I do not see any signs of aggression when I'm looking at them). Any ideas?
