I had quite an evening today. Before I begin this story I just want to add that not only do I have 12 chicks in the house but we also have a new puppy. So moving on I was already having a hard time with the pup....went back to check on my chickies and what did I find?? A bloody tail on one of my favorite girls! One of the others had been on the attack....the poor thing. I paniced but I got it handled. I went ahead and moved the other 11 out into the coop while the injured one is still inside. The coop isn't 100% finished but it will due for now. My one concern is the temps at night but I put the heat lamp out so we will see. I just wonder if what started all this was the fact that they were outgrowing their brooder? Is that a possibility? And how long shoulder I keep this one chick seperated from the others? Any suggestions would be appreciated!
