Bully Chick - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Thread Starter 
UPDATE:

Big Bird as we've dubbed her, was reunited with the flock today. She's still reeking a little havoc (placing her big foot on smaller birds when they're sleeping, pecking every now and then at other birds). But she also seems to be avoided by the other birds some. She's on one side of the brooder, everyone else goes to the other side (not all the time but enough to notice). The other birds can't seem to relax now that Big Bird has rejoined either. Everyone else will be laying down trying to rest and she's running or walking back and forth in the brooder and then she gets everyone else stirred up. She's also picking fights (and having fights picked with her) with another Buff Orphington (standing straight up and chest bumping while flapping wings and occasionally pecking).

Thoughts?

What did you end up doing with your bully chick? I am having a similar issue with a bully silkie (of all things!). The other chicks are calm and happy as long as the silkie is not in the brooder. They are 4 weeks old and I just separated my silkie today. Wondering how your situation played out??

The pecking order is mixed up. It tends to settle down after a few weeks. Just watch and make sure no blood is drawn. Chickens love red and will go after it. Good luck.
Did a moth know that the flame was going to change her life forever, or did she simply fly towards that heated embrace, knowing it would offer her something she couldn't give herself? In the end, the answer didn't really matter. The moth had never wanted the choice. -Joey W. Hill-
