Hi I have a chick who won't stop attacking the other chicks he has made one of the chicks eye bleed (I got her fixed up) what is making him attack them? They have a red light, feed and water 24/7, a large broader, and a couple perches any advice would be greatly appreciated thank you!

Occasionally you'll get one that's just plain mean, but more likely it's over curious and doesn't know any better, or it's gotten used to bullying the others. You can try separating it for a while from the others (a wire divider is fine, or you can even try removing it completely and putting it in a different set up for a time out) to see if that'll discourage it from picking on others.

Pics of your brooder, please?

I made this out of 1/2" hardware cloth for a 'chick jail'.
or you could take a length of HC about 6-8" high and join it in a circle for a 'corral'.
