    Hey there! So I have a barred rock baby chick, I bought her with an Americauna. With in a day the Americauna was dead. I ordered another BR And Americauna. I introduced them and my first BR started pecking, keeping them from eating, pecking feet, eyes, throat and feet. I now think maybe she killed the first chick. I have since separated her but she is so loud and mean. She doesn't rest and paces around. Any help for her? Even if she is trying to establish she is boss she can't kill the others. I have raised 5 chickens so far and never seen this. Any help is appreciated. :/

    To stop a lonely chick from being lonely... put a mirror in the enclosure with it.

    As for mixing her with other chicks, wait until they are older, less delicate, and roughly the same size.
