    Two chicks hatched today. The older one (by 12 hours) is pecking at the younger one when I put them together. Why is this happening:/

    I don't know, nothing to do and it's facinated with the other chick.

    Try putting in a mirror or stuffed animal or something colorful and interesting so it will peck that and not the chick.

    Brooder with red light.
