    Im not sure if this is an emergency but I have a very small chick, so small than other chicks over a week younger and it seems like it is less active than the others, has a quieter cheeping noise and has a patch of bald skin around his neck, I'm not sure if this is normal of maybe he is getting pecked? only some tiny wing feathers have grown in but all the other chicks are covered in new feathers. just wondering if anyone could help me?[​IMG]

    I forgot the chick is nearly 4 weeks old.
