After 24 hours in solitary confinement we took Mr. Meanie out last night. My DH held him for awhile (he loves human contact but does peck our fingers). I finally grabbed a couple of the other chicks, including the Miss Peeps, the buff O who's eyes he pecked till they were bruised, and let them run around with him. He lasted all of about a minute before he went after Miss Peeps eyes! un So, back into solitary he went. I have a mirror in there with him and noticed he spends most of his time hanging out near there, sometimes just constantly pecking at his reflection in the mirror. I took the mirror out, thinking this was encouraging his pecking habit, and he started trying to fly to the top of the brooder. Over and over again and then he (or she - I really don't know) would hit the wire on top and fall down. So, I finally put the mirror back and he went back to pecking at his image, happy as could be. Anyone have any ideas or know a chick therapist that could help???? Maybe I'm just being impatient?
