I had my 4-week-old chicks outside free ranging today. This is the second time they have been out roaming and are getting the hang of going in and out of the barn. Since I was working on the other side of the barn in the garden today, I kept running back and forth to check. On one trip I noticed one of my meaties had a huge red splotch on his wing! Gasp! Something attacked my chickens!! Was he pecked by one of the others? A predator? I picked him up and on closer inspection it was . . . strawberry juice! He had been sunning himself on top of one the treats. Silly chicken!
