I am so mad! All of my broilers have injuries from pecking. Mostly on their sphincters. It is just disgusting! So I separated them out and got a big flake of hay for all the chicks and am hoping that will help. I have 31 chicks in a 12X16 dog kennel and they are still not happy! I almost want to drowned the lot of them and forget chickens all together. It is so frustrating. I hope they will get over this. The sad thing is, the chicks that are being picked at so badly ARE ALLOWING IT! They don't even try and move away from the ones doing the pecking. It is making me crazy! Why O Why do I love poultry???
