    Our chicks are a week old and seem to doing fine other then a few of them seem to have bald/bare spots on their breast area.They all are developing their feathers and growing but about two of them have this bare spot should we be worried.[​IMG][​IMG]

    I wouldn't worry too much about it.
    My baby cockerels were bare for quite awhile after the pullets were fully feathered.
