    My two week old keeps pulling the fuzz on the tail and back of my 1 week old. Why would she do this and how can I "correct" her?

    I think they all do it for a while, given another couple of weeks it should stop.


    Good luck with them.

    I have been having the same issue. I have 3 1/2 week old Sebbies. I have come to the conculsion it is bordom. I have my 2 outside all day with no issues, I bring them in and 1 is picking the other to the point of bleeding. I have seperated them at night, just put the brooders right next to each other and both are fine.

    Someone posted and said... brooder too hot, too small a space or lack of greens [​IMG]

    Mine are not under a heatlamp...have huge brooder....out all day grazing....PLUS I gave them toys. Still picked. They are not even upset to be seperate. Good Luck
