    G’Day from down under smalltownfkock [​IMG] Welcome!

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]

    We have a flock of 12 Araucanas.
    I do have a question though I have one chick constantly pecks at another chick. This is the only one that pecks and it only pecks this one chick. The chick that is getting pecked turns away and stares at the wall. When I see this I remove the chick that is doing the pecking.

    They are 3 weeks old.
