I have 8 chicks and today I discovered one with some of its neck feathers missing and shortly after examining it I saw a small cut on a lump barely above the right wing socket. when I saw that the chick was missing feathers I noticed that some of the other chicks were pecking on it. So we applied the peck no more and that made the other chicks just peck it even more, so I isolated it into a box with its own heat lamp and I cleaned off the wound and applied some neosporin on the wound and the chick has been trying to peck its own neck. Also it has not been quiet even since i isolated it. How should i reintroduce it to the flock? as well as what should i do for the chick itself in isolation.(Im new to raising my own chicks because im a high school sophomore)Thanks for all the help!
