    HELP! My mom has forced e to introcduce my younger chicks into the flock when they're too young!
    MY rooster pecked one and now she's bleed under her! How do I stop such bleeding? I think it's her gizzard. That sack of sand and stuff! What do I do?!?!!?
    I'm freaking out! She's only 6 weeks old!!

    She bled a lot at first but it's slowed down.
    She's also tramatized/paralyzed. She's not that active.

    Put her in a warm dark place with food and water. 6 weeks is too young, they should be close to the same size and introduced gradually. Can you post pics of the injury?

    That's what I've tried to explain to my mom. She sees me as trying to defy her or something. And see what happens!
    OMG.

    Okay, I gave her some feed and she's pretty hungry. She's making gestures like she's hurting when she's eating.

    Show her this site, the older ones will kill the younger ones. can you take pics? it would really help in determining treatment.

    There's clear liquid coming out... I don't know if that's water or what.

    She's jerking around a lot. What do I need to do?!

    Is she struggling to get away from you or just flailing around? I'm sorry you may need to put her down. It doesn't sound good.
