HELP!!! Why does this baby look like she's been plucked?!?! Both of my newbies look like this, on their bellies and under their wings. They just look mangy in general, and their feathers are anything but soft. Are they diseased? FYI: I did not purchase these chicks. I "rescued" them from a friend whose sister bought them at the KY State Fair b/c they were "cute." They eat organic starter food from Fresh Start Growers Supply (our local natural farm store). They sleep in a brooder, with a heat lamp when it's chilly, and I have recently started putting them in a coop outside during the day to enjoy the grass. They are isolated from the other chickens and the dog, so nothing is trying to eat them. I clean their brooder out every couple days. They seem to be much stinkier than my big girls were at that age. There were 6 of them in the same brooder, and it seems that these 2 new girls are much more smelly for some reason? I have no clue what to make of this. Can anyone help?
