So I got 17 chicken from Cackle Hatchery and it feels like deja vu. I posted about this before as it happened already once in 2011, but now here we go again. A baby chick starts crying in distress and starts scratching and pulling feathers off the neck and wing area. The neck is already without feathers. I looked at the neck area and there is no wound.... yet. If keeps on going though, I am afraid will cause a wound. I am at a loss and can't believe going through this whole ordeal again. Disrupts every other chick's sleep and if it continues it will keep us all up at night. I can't believe this started on day one, last time it started on day 5 and another chick got it too about a week later but that one recovered after a couple of days. This just makes me sick and takes away all the pleasure of having baby chicks. Thing is, when I talked to the hatchery when it happened last time they had no clue and didn't know why it was happening. So no help from them. I am now wondering if anybody has figured out what causes this mystery thing. Here is the thread I posted in 2011 https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/459814/baby-chick-in-distress Any another person with a similar problem: https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/460412/week-old-chick-is-scratching-and-crying-and-freaking-out What are the odds that this happened twice to me?
