    I have noticed a few people have said to use non-toxic marker or food color to mark their chicks. Well I did it and now one of the chicks is running around pecking the others. (I used no reds, just blue, green, purple, and brown) What should I do now? She just pecks once of twice then moves on, but she eventually comes back and pecks once or twice again!
