Okay, here's what I find this morning when we get up:

I have him/her isolated from the others, and thought the problem was controlled, now I have three more with bald, pecked bums!!

What am I doing wrong?
They are in a large rubbermaid brooder with ample space, water, feed and pine shavings.

I can't have them all separate. I all ready have them in 2 bins, plus I have the wounded three separated with their wounds, because even the pecked ones are pecking the other pecked ones!!!

Ok, it will have to wait until tomorrow. Will they be okay in their brooder if I keep the light off and put my extra-large heating pad under it?
I've got 5 pecked chicks now. Wish I could find the culprit.

Also SeaChick uses duct tape. She says that it will not stick to the skin only the feathers and it will fall off by itself in about 3 weeks. Try that....

blu-kote comes in several dif. dispensing types. spray, pump, and plastic bottle with a applicator on the inside of the lid.

The sprays are hard to use. it gets everywhere and it stains. get the one with the applicator if you can.

they all do the same job. I find that that one is the easiest to use.
