    My bantam chick I got today from TSC drowned in the water dish!!?? So I went back to TSC and got 6 more banty chicks. Now I have 7. And one of mine keeps attacking the other ones,it well bite their beaks and twist them or flip them on their backs. Why is it doing that???

    I would call your TSC and see if they'll let you trade the mean one for the other one. What is your water dish like? Are you able to post a pic? If it's too deep then they can drown - you need to put stones or something else in it. Sorry for your loss [​IMG]

    Hi and Welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    Sorry to hear that you lost one of your chicks. [​IMG]

    I use large glass "marbles" (from the Crafts section at WalMart) to put in the drinking section of the waterers for young chicks.

    They can drink around the marbles and at the same time, it prevents them from falling in and drowning.

    Hope this is some help!
