a few of my chicks have been pecked on by other on an area just in front of their wing. Its about the size of a dime and its bare raw skin showing, blood red. I have some chicks that are a couple of weeks older and bigger and they may be the ones that are pecking.
I've removed the injured chicks from the rest and hope they dont pick one another.


Any suggestions on caring for the injured? I read that I can apply HOT PICK to the wounds to stop the pecking, anyone heard of that?


thanks !!

There is something called Blue Kote or something like that people use on it. I use a blue antiseptic cream my vet gave me for my dog.

Do you have enough room for your birds? I've found that is the biggest thing when it comes to them picking at each other
