    Over the course of just an hour or so one of our chicks got pecked by the others and now has a few bleeding tail feathers. Do I pull them out like blood feathers? There are a good bit of them on the one side. Cornstarch to stop the bleeding maybe? I've never had this happen

    Wash the chick to remove the blood color. Red lamp if possible. Cornstarch is fine. Blue Kote will help cover the color if you have it.
