    I have baby phesants about a week old. I have them on gamebird starter. All of sudden some of them are having trouble pooping. the ones that are not having problems are picking on the butts of the ones that do have the problem. Please help

    What do you mean they are having trouble pooping? Is it sticking to there butts? If so get a warm rag and you will have to wipe it clean.
    Also MOST IMPORTANT if the others are picking at them they will end up splitting the hines open see blood and won't stop until they kill them. I would seperate the ones that are having problems before that happens.
    Good Luck
