    Hi all,

    I'm new to poultry keeping and this is the first time that Ive had chicks. My two partridge wyanndotte chicks (Dazzle and Pip) are two weeks old today and I noticed that Dazzle, the larger chick of the two has sore toes.

    Is it two pecking? If so what can I do to prevent more/ help him?

    Thank you in advance,

    Charlotte.

    What do you have for their bedding it could be pecking or it could be bedding.

    1 that isn't the best because while there is less slippage than a magazine they can still slip, I would say that it is
    toe pecking put some pick no more on the foot.
