We have about twenty chicks just over a month old which we recently moved out to their coop. About half the birds are pullets while the other half we are raising as meat birds. This morning my son went to care for them and found one of the pullets with a bloody rear end and nearly dead. We have put her out of her misery but I'm concerned about the rest of our flock. Could it be one of the other chicks? We looked and didn't see any bloody beaks. We don't think any critters can get in our coop, we don't have the run door open yet as we're waiting for it to warm up a bit. No other chicks have any blood or injuries and seem perfectly healthy. Any help will be appreciated!
