    So I had a terrible night last night, I have the flu and threw up all night. This morning I only had enough time to change my chicks water and food before having to lay down again. When I checked this afternoon one of my ameraucana chicks was bleeding from her tail. Half of her little feathers were pecked out. She's so white that you can usually see her skin and blood right through the feathers. I separated her and am moving everyone to a bigger box tonight but what should I do about her? I've got a red light on them already, we don't have blue kote where I am from... I don't know what to do for her poor little bum.
