2 week old chicks pecking each other - Page 2

post #11 of 12

Yes, they need way more room....the pick no more is not going to help at all.

 

How soon they feather out can depend on how you manage the heat.

The sooner you start slowly reducing their heat, the sooner they will grow feathers and acclimate to cooler temps.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

 

Quoting centrarchid:

"Make every effort to understand your chicken's biology and the environment that supports it."

I talked to the guy at the coop where I purchased the chicks and he told me to use a red heat lamp. Tha red heat lamp seems to have calmed them down. Maybe it will buy me some time until I divide my garage.
