Are keets normally aggressive to each other? I went down to the brooder room today and found blood in the plastic tub where the keets and chicks are living. I thought wow, they are showing symptoms of coccidiosis already? They are less than a week old, never had that to happen and I raise hundreds of chicks every year. On further inspection one of the keets had blood on the side of it's neck. One of the pretty lavenders, of course. I wasn't sure if it was residue from some one's droppings or what so took it outside to wash it off and look at it in the sunlight. Sure enough, it had a hole in the side of it's neck but it was no longer bleeding so I cleaned it and the blood off the brooder floor. There are about 12 keets and 18 chicks but no one else was hurt that I could find. It is a 2x4' long plastic tub with a screen top. I can't find anywhere it could have gotten hurt. I do not use shavings so not a piece of wood to stab it with. The blood I noticed was all in the middle of the brooder beside the plastic waterer. What I have noticed in the brooder in the house is they like to pick at feathered feet but I have also seen them peck their own feet and yelp. These are strange creatures to me.
