Hello there, i have problem
A baby chicken is pecking the other baby chickens eyes. Is there anything I can do to stop it?
Also the chicks are 1 day old.
And i don't think it's a pecking order
Because the other chicks don't peck back.
Also the aggressive chick doesn't seem to stop.
And it's just one aggressive chick pecking the other chicks eyes.
And I only have 1 brooder so I can't really separate the aggressive chick

I have seen some of my chicks do it to others in my brood, they never seem to peck back at the one pecking them. But they have never been severely hurt by it so unless it becomes a huge issue I believe it's just a playful chick thing. But if it does become to where it looks seriously dangerous, I agree with BrahmaChicken5000, isolation of the chick INSIDE the brooder with the others is the best option in my opinion. Separate them by putting chicken wire or hardware cloth between.
