I don't know if it was bad juju or what. I was reading the bored babies thread yesterday and thought, I'm glad I don't have any trouble. BAM! Trouble. The 3 week olds were in there outdoor pen yesterday and I got the news that one had a bloody backside. I separated him from the rest and thought that would be the end. Oh no, nope. Today, all but one have been pecked. A bunch of bloody butts. They had toys, mirrors, outdoor time, fresh food, water. What happened? I got some Fooey spray from the pet store. Man, it's awful. They are still pecking at each other. Even themselves! What can I do? I've run out of cages (3) and picked up a baby play thingy today to use, too. It's 7 three week old speckled sussex, if that matters. Ruth Edited for: Stinkin brats! They seem to like the Fooey stuff. It certainly isn't a deterrent. I remembered my big ferret cage and got it out. 2 x 4 x 3. I closed off all three stories and divided it in halves. Six sections. 2 X 2 x 1 tall. The other poor soul is by himself in a super pet cage. Maybe, they'll forget about this pecking thing, shortly. What I don't get, is why eat at yourself? Thanks for the help.
