    i put two chicks that was givin to me bc they couldnt keep them but they were the same ags within a couple of days but one iis much smaller than the rest and when i introduced them it was in neutral territory and were fine all day but when i went out to check on then that night she was bloody and curled up lifeless in the corner so i took her and put her up alone so she could heal. does anyone know with this continue to happen or what can i do to try to stop it?

    Wow...got all that in one sentence! lol

    You may have a banty chick if it is significantly smaller than the others. You should keep her away from the other chicks as long as she has red spots on her, as they will continue to peck. You may need to wait until the smaller chick has grown quite a bit before trying to reintroduce again. This may be several weeks. Good Luck!
