I'm a newb too
but don't they gradually lose all of the feathers from their head and neck as they mature?

They should lose most of their head feathers/down by about 6 weeks, so your bald spots may be the beginning of balding.

If I can figure out how to post photos. I will. The spots are too symitrical to be the gradual balding plus they are so low on the neck that I'm wondering if its a start of neck waddles or something, hoping it will tell me how many toms I have

Note the small round bump toward the base of the neck. There is a matching one on the opposite side and one centered toward the front
