    Hi there,need help please...I have three 2 week old chicks,the silky bantam and the polish are picking on the wyandotte.they won't let it eat and they size it up,puffing out their chests and standing over the poor little Vegemite.I don't know their sex yet.just moved them into a bigger box,to see if that was,the problem.any feedback would be really appreciated:)

    Aan poor little thing! What happens when you remove one of the bullies? Does the one left still pick on the little guy? Try and watch to see who the main culprit is and separate him/her from the other two otherwise the Wyandotte will remain the outsider. Good luck!

    Put them in as large a brooder as you can, the more space they have the better, and add a second feeder and waterer and see how things go. How big is the box you moved them into?
