Bully Chick

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

So I just got some new chicks, and the little Black sex link pullet is just bullying everyone. (Even the ducklings are scared of her)

I don't want to separate her and make her be alone, but I don't want any of the others getting hurt... Any advice?

I’ve had that situation before. Making one “be alone” really helped. I kept it totally separated from the others all day and put them back together at night. The behavior changed radically. That chick kept up a plaintive peeping all day but it was not harmed. It got over it.

However you can make a basket out of hardware cloth or some fine mesh wire the chick cannot get its head through and set that basket over it in the brooder. Make sure it has food and water. At least it won’t injure or kill the other chicks while it is in there.

When you come to a fork in the road, take it.
