I bought 6 2-3 week old chicks 6 weeks ago. Been together and adorable until 10 days ago. My RIR has take to pulling the top of the tail feathers out of my easter egger until it bleeds. She also randomly walks up to others and yanks a feather out of them causing a loud squawk! I seperated the RIR, blucoated my EE. After 5 days in jail but able to see each other I reunited them. EE and RIR bumped chests and EE actually looked like the new boss. Later that afternoon EE was missing her feathers on back at base of tail. Blood again : (.
Same routine. EE is healed. RIR has been in jail for the last couple of days. Question is, if they were raised together , why the fighting at this age? Do they both want top boss? Neither seems to give up.Or is she just a bully? Everything says let them work it out unless there is blood. Well there has been blood twice. What do I do? I love them all. rir cries without them : (
thank you so much!
