    What to do with a bully baby chick. Ordered an Easter egger chick along with 14 other chicks. The Easter egger keeps pecking the other chicks in the eyes and beaks. What should I do?

    Welcome to BYC!
    We will be happy to help you sort out your situation (not an uncommon one) - a little more information will help us to do so. How old are the chicks now? Are they being kept in a brooder or coop and what are the dimensions of where they are? Is the pecking you have seen aggressive or curious in nature? Is the EE the only chick in which you are seeing what you feel is excessive aggression?
