@bubbariddles   Welcome to BYC  there are a few things boredom can cause this,  too small a brooder can also cause them to peck each others feathers. Is it just one doing this? separate it from the rest but so they can still see each other. What is the temp in your brooder?

I am sorry for your loss I hope the others make it. What breed? and what feed are you feeding them?
