    I went to change their box this evening and all 3 silkies tailes had been pecked off and were bleeding. I think the danish leghorns did it so I put them in another container and I applied bag balm to the open areas. They are 3 weeks old. Is their anything else I should do?

    Just make sure that the Leghorns can't get at them again.
