    I have two chickens. Today they started seriously fighting-grabbing beaks, pulling out feathers. All quite violently with some bloody scrapes. We do not know what kind they are or how old but think 8-9 weeks. They are a bit bigger than a big pigeon. The main problem is that one of them is smaller and has a very crooked neck (and thus sort of floppy). We are afraid for him/her. He now has been resting on my lap for hours.
    We have a small movable cage and a large one but when they are separated and not with us they cry. Help. We love them and are afraid and unsure.


    p.s. anyone had a chicken with this crooked neck?
