    Seriously, I had to separate him.
    These two are from the 6 I hatched out on 4-30-08, so they're 3 weeks. I believe they are BO roo crossed over SLW hens.
    Both roos? The red dots on their combs & beaks are from them scuffling with each other. [​IMG]

    Chick#1 - The Bully
    He's been dragging chick #2 around the brooder, and absolutely is relentless in his torture of him. I had to set up a second brooder. *sigh*

    Chick #2 - The victim.
    He's been sleeping since I took the bully out of the brooder. Poor fella must just be exhausted.

    Both roos? Or too early to tell.

    Well, if that's the case, I wonder what the poor guy did to tick her off!

    She's also the biggest chick. I have her in the most expensive brooder in the world, LOL, the bottom of my extra parrot cage, LMAO. It's a $600 cage, and we don't use it, but I keep it in the storage shed "just in case." [​IMG] She's in the bottom with the grate out and two of the other chicks, so everyone is quiet and happy...for now!!

    Thanks-
