    Is it normal for one day old baby Sultan chick to be highly aggressive? It pecks and hold on dragging the others to the ground I have never experienced this before!![​IMG]

    No, that's not normal. I always get some eye/toes peckers, but the pecks are obviously from curiosity. Not to intentionally terrorize another chick. I think I'd give the meanie its own little time out corner somewhere in the brooder. You could do a box within a box, or fence off a little piece with some hardware clothe. Good luck!
