    so I got 30 chicks 2 wks ago from MM...10 RRs, 10EEs, and 10 BOs...all pullets...yesterday the RRs and EEs ganged up on the BOs and I had to seperate them...my blond babies are in the shed under a red heat lamp, the 20 hooligans are elsewhere with their own heater etc.. What is up with that? They woud have killed the BOs one bite at a time...there was blood around the base of all BO tails...they are so mellow and together and not picking each other...I am on them like white on rice to monitor that situation...I did clean them up, washed all blood traces away and sprayed their butts with some antiseptic stuff I got from the vet...the EEs and RRs are not picking on each other...hoodlums...[​IMG]

    I know it's not funny, but I love the word "hooligans!"
