My new arrivals are about 3days old.. and from hatching, one chick has always had more yellow down than the other. Is this indicating that the chick with the least amount of down is, sick? or weak?

Thanks.

The squab that has less down may have a dilution gene, such yellow, recessive red or dun. Dilute squabs look almost naked until they begin fledging, but are perfectly healthy.
