OK, I have two young children and think I have been more stressed out and worried over these chicks in the last 3 wks than I ever did w/my kids. I went to check on chicks last night after being gone all day and during the day they picked all the tail feathers off of 4 out of 5 of my BO's. Two were bleeding!! I have 21 chicks in a large box about 16 square feet. They are in the garage during the day. Light off, fan on, garage door open, it gets to be about 90 during the hottest part of the day. Plenty of water and food. Are they getting too hot, too crowded? I was very upset when I noticed the picking. I don't know who is doing it and the strange thing is out of cochins, BO's, Blk Australarps, and EE's, the BO's are the only ones being picked. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong? Should I just move them to the coop outside?
