Is this peer pecking/bullying or a medical condition? The polish babies are just getting their top hat feathers in. Hatch date was 6/19/11. I hadn't noticed any bullying while chicks were indoors in brooder. They now reside outside in a 4 x 4 ft mini-coop enclosed in wire with a hide away shelter inside and a few large sticks on the ground for perching. Any advice is appreciated. I have currently removed the chick and applied ointment to the boo-boo and placed him back indoors pending further information.
