I have two broilers that have obviously been seriously pecked at....one has been pecked so badly that the skin is gone from a section of his rear... I washed and put 'blue lotion' from our horse medic kit (it's basically idodine antiseptic) in hopes that it will keep them from being pecked any more. Why do they do this? The chicks are 3 weeks old, beginning to feather out and growing great.... They are in a truck that is big enough and get moved, fed and watered with great care!?!?
