Babies are starting to develop a bald spot on their head, i have attached a picture. I am feeding Ebsilac puppy milk replacer. They have had their eyes open about 2 weeks now. Any ideas?

Hi, Kayvee--

I had one a few years ago that developed a bald spot in about the same location as the one on yours. It took me a while to figure out, but I finally discovered it occurred as the result of the baby sticking his head partially through a cage opening so that it could chew on the wire. Is this a possibility?

These guys have not been in a cage yet. I have had them in an open top basket. When they start getting active, i will have to move them to a cage. I'm wondering if it is lack of sunlight.
