    I was told they peck at one anothe r for several reasons ...


    1. being bored
    2. heat
    3. over crowded


    I have several of my chicken pecking and taking hide off , I been spraying the areas with some kind of BLUE SPRAY ( I think its an antibotic ) , seen a couple with blood on back side . moving them out into the run will help my situation .​
