    I have a 2 week old Ameraucana chick that is quite aggressive to his siblings. It is most definitely a lil roo and it keeps picking on one particular chick. I've separated the bully but is there anything I can do so I can let it back with the group. I would hate to have this chick by itself.

    i would separate them through a fencing in the brooder box. so they will be able to interact through the wire without hurting or killing the other hens. he may just be establishing the pecking order. hope this helps [​IMG]
