    ok so first time with chicks. I went down to feed them a little bit ago and I always fill the feeder then put some on my had to eat from. Well my on girl chippy always jumps on my hand to eat. Well tonight I noticed a booboo on her. Not sure how to treat it. Any help would be appreciated. She acts normal eating and drinking and running around with the others still. Thanks

    Looks like she is being pecked. Use a heat lamp with a red bulb and hang a chick stick in the brooder. Put blue kote on to keep them from continuing the pecking. Good luck with your little girl, she is very pretty!

    It’s basically a bunch of chick treats mashed together that they peck st to keep from pecking each other.
    Blue kote is a special “cream” and it is blue. You put it on cuts or pecked spots and it tastes yuck so the chicks will stop pecking.

    Ok so I got the stuff and they are really picking at her now with that on. It was a spray. Do they make something else I can try? And they are afraid of the chick stick. Lol. They are all staying in one corner so they don’t have to go by it.
