Wow, two situations in just one day! That hen I asked about the crowing earlier started seriously pecking at two of the chicks this morning and by serious I mean she drew blood on one of their heads! She keeps doing it! Can anyone tell me what is going on???? She is definitely a hen. She is some kind of OEGB mix I believe. She hatched these chicks on Dec 9th 2009 and has been raising them since. I have never witnessed this behaviour before and they live in my dining room so I am with them every day.
