I'm really bothered by finding one of my two 6 week pullets pecked to the point that she was literally scalped. The two chicks had been integrated into the flock for 3 weeks already. They were all out together free ranging just prior to my putting them in. I went down about an hour later to lock the coop up when I discovered the chick. I have lots of places in the run that I set up for the chicks to get away from the hens if they needed to, including a creep. I had left the two chicks in the creep, but when I went to lock them up this one had somehow managed to escape. Is this something I need to worry about every time chicks get hatched out? Makes me think I should have raised them indoors. Would have avoided this and the result is the same because now I have pullets in a cage in the garage. Still....I keep asking myself, why did they decide to go after her after they had been doing just fine together?
