Ok I moved the first wave into the brooder, four cuckoo marans yesterday. Today I added the next batch of four. One of the new ones is really cheeping which drives the rest of them nuts..they come over and peck at him. He is quite active. His backside is missing some down from the hatch..he got a little stuck from the membrane drying and the area is a little red which they peck at. I have a red heat lamp which i thought would decrease pecking. Anything I can do for the little guy? Anything I can put on his tush to cover up the red that they won't peck at or am I just going to have to separate him? Pics coming soon...as soon as I get photobucket and my puter to cooperate!
