So my assorted order from McMurray is 5 weeks now. It included two turkens. Last Friday I moved them outside to their welded wire chicken yard. Using an igloo dog house with the red light in it for a temporary coop. Although they were a bit shocked at first (it is cool here now), they seemed to adjust well. However, after having no problem at all with pecking I found my turkens today being pecked mostly at the top of their shoulders where the feather line starts. The two that I think are white leghorns were the ones I I saw pecking. So I brought the two back inside to my brooder that I haven't taken down. They do not seem to be pecking each other. I think they are either a hen and a roo or two roos (mostly due to rooster posturing). I will keep them separated until healed up though I am now concerned how they will do when put back. Anyone with mixed flocks have opinions? Giving them some boiled egg for extra protein, anything else to do for the wounds? They are not actively bleeding, look more like bruising plus missing feathers.
Betodine ( I think that's the spelling). Sprayed on the wound. Leghorns are bad about pecking, I've noticed it with mixed flocks.
Also it could be that it is too hot on them. How many chicks do you have and how close is the light to them? Is the bulb one that is infra red?
