Hi there to everyone here in chicken land. I am a new member, all though I have been lurking for a little while now. It is great to have a site where we all have a common love and able to help one another. I have learned so much from all of you Thank you. I am hoping someone can help me with something that is happening to my 4 week old chicks. they are eating feathers, to the point of killing one another. They are pecking holes in the skin but none of which seem to me could be fatal however the little chick is all but naked of feathers none of which are left lying around in the pen so they must be eating them. Can someone tell me why this is happening?? I have separated one little pullet but this morning I found the second naked and dead chick. Please, anyone have any suggestions??
