    I told you all that I got my chicks today! So excited!

    One little chick I think has been picked on I think in travel. The tip of her wing is bloody, and the others keep going after her....

    What can I do?????
    Please help me [​IMG]

    I think you probably need to pull the one with the injury out until it heals so it doesn't get picked on.

    I've got the opposite problem. They're all in good health - one of them is just a bully and is picking on everyone!

    Ok I pulled her out, and put one of the polish's with her. Since they are the most passive. I put some anti biotic on her wing.

    Wheww this being a new mother is wearing me out already~ [​IMG]
