    I just hatched out five silkie chicks and one had a pink toe. The others have already started pecking at its toe. I remember reading somewhere about chicks peck at anything red so I used a Black sharpie marker and colored it in, they stopped pecking at it... Yeah!

    Just thought I would pass this along..
