    Wow.....not good.
    how old are the small ones ?
    you need to seperate those small birds immediately until their old enough to fend for them selves...they can be pecked to death...
    if you have any chicken wire laying around. put togrther a area for them to be in away from the others...I need to know first how old the small ones are...

    Quote:sounds like they are just establishing their pecking order...if they are the same age, they will be ok but still have to take care of the wounds asap
    .....fresh blood attracts more pecking so get rid of the fresh blood on them immediately. they will peck on anything "RED"
