    When I went to offer my chicks some treats, yesterday, I found one had a bloody comb. I pulled her out and treated her. I could not see the wound clearly, but I removed the blood. When I placed her back in, I wanted to watch her, to make sure the others were not picking on her. But when I returned, others were bloody. So I'm in the bathroom, tending to the chicks, not really seeing wounds, but removing the blood. All of them had it on their beaks also. It was like they were having a peck-fest and pecking each other. So I go back and find the rest of them bloody also. I am in a total panic now. But then my daughter comes in and drops something through the brooder cage. I see the chicks dash for it. Then I notice their beaks look all bloody. She was feeding them raspberries:rolleyes:
