In the Brooder
- Aug 11, 2020
I had to separate my chick when about 2 or 3 weeks ago, the mom was done and scalped one of them. I separated that one, now he is healed and the others won’t accept him back, they chase, peck and the chick just screams and can’t get away. I had it separated in a small kennel next to the brooder so they can hear each other. I now have it under a laundry basket in the brooder, will this work? How much time do I need to give them? How much chasing and pecking is too much? They are all about 7 weeks now, I plan on putting them out in the big coop this week, do you think it’s just too small of a container and that’s why they are so aggressive? Help!
