Last year we got our first chickens, 4, and after some unfortunate events we were down to one. So this year we got four more. After we transitioned them four younger ones in with the older hen (after they were six weeks old) We did everything right that I've read about moving more chickens in. Two ended up with wounds on their backs. We figured it was because they got under the shed. Those two ended up dying. Now another one of the chicks has the same wound but hasn't left the coop. So our only two options are its the heat lamp (I don't know how) or our older hen, Peeps. We just went last night and got six more chicks. They are separate and we are taking the two others out. But what do we do? I'm at a loss.. Any suggestions?? Thanks!!
