    Some of our chicks are picking each others feathers out.
    Will they grow back or do you have to wait for the moult?
    Some have little pecked spots on their backs and some have bald backs.
    Please help us with this!!!!

    They will grow back just watch closly to make sure they are not pecking to the point of blood then they would easily turn into canibals and you will have to seperate. They may need some protein added to their diet.
