In the Brooder
- May 1, 2013
I had a single chick hatch two days ago, I tried to incubate more but only one turned out fertile. So, the little girl was so lonely she screamed all day and all night. Today, I purchased two adorable little 2 week old babies to keep her company.. apparently those two days were long enough to make her antisocial? As soon as I put the two in with her, she almost lunged at their eyes, as if it were a cat chasing a mouse! She literally flies back towards their eyes when I move her back. She screams when shes all alone, but when I put the two babies in with her she relentlessly pecks at their eyes! What is this behavior? I was worried that they were too old for her, one is two weeks the other is one. But theyre so calm, and shes so randomly vicious, she wont leave their eyes alone. So now shes separate and crying again. Is there anyone else who had this issue?
