I am sort of paranoid about cannibalism, so I do everything I can to prevent it, but I still get nervous when I see the chicks doing their normal chick behaviors of pecking at each other softly and such. Last night, I looked in on my RIR peeps, and saw a spot of red at the top crease of one of their wings, and entered panic mode. As I looked closer, I realized that this was on several of the chicks. I Flipped on all the lights, reached in and grabbed one of the chicks (gently, of course) and looked at it closely before realizing.... ...Oh, these are Rhode Island REDS, and their red pinfeathers are coming in. Silly me!
