I don’t think this is a disease or emergency. My chickens are about 8 wks old. By their eyes they seems to have small bald patches. All are healthy, eating, drinking good. None are acting weird. I’ve had older chickens who were already laying when I got them so the raising from babies is all new to me. I posted a couple pics of a couple of my chickens. Hard to get them to sit still to get a really good picture. If anyone can let me know if this is normal for chickens this age & put my mind at ease. Thank you!

There may be some molting going on. See those fuzzy little feathers on the black one? Those are usually feathers being shed.

If you're referring to the lack of feathers around the eyes, that looks totally normal.
Thank you! We were outside in the yard with them when my husband was like ummm what is wrong with their heads? Of course I freaked out! Thanks for putting my mind at ease.
