    Hi and welcome to BYC from northern Michigan [​IMG]

    If you are using a white light in the brooder, change to a red one, it help settle the chicks and reduce pecking.

    Hello from Kansas, beautychick and [​IMG]! You may need to separate out the one getting pecked if it continues. If damage is done to a chicken, the others can be pretty ruthless. Good luck to you!
