I noticed one of my baby chicks had a bloddy scab are on her back yesterday am. Then last night I noticed some of the other babies holding her down with their little feet and taking turns pecking at the scab. I cant make them stop. I have isolated the chick now, but dont know what is causing this behavior. How do I treat the scab, when can I put her back. I am a newbie, just bought a farm in October and am trying to fill it with fun farm animals, starting with chickens. I have a nice coop that came with the farm. Not sure what I am doing. I am jumping in head first. I have 58 chickens, 17 ducks, and 2 turkeys. I have only lost 2 chicks since starting this adventure on April 1st and dont want to lose another! Any suggestions would be appreciated. I have not put the chickens outside yet, are they getting cabin fever? I put the ducks out for the first time on Saturday, it just started getting nice here in South Dakota.
