Hello, I just joined the site after doing a Google search for a pecking problem.. BYC was one of the first few listings and after taking a look I thought it was a good group to join. I have 7 chickens at present. I did start with 12 but 5 of them died. I have Buff Orpingtons and Partridge Rocks. All the chickens that died were Partridge Rocks and the only remaining Partridge Rock is a rooster. I live in Southwest PA near WV and MD.
