Hi, I have three week oldHi, I have three week old chicks, two americuanas and 1 polish. Just this week they started pecking at themselves. I noticed it started over the week with the the polish no longer having his cute tuft. Then as we observed them, we saw them almost obseeively pecking at their own under-wing, tails, etc. They don't seem to be pecking at each other, but instead at themselves. Are they naturally removing the downy fur? Am I not feeding them enough? Are they losing their baby feathers? This is scary!
