Often it takes some little change like that!
It it is feather picking, upping the protein can help too.

Thank you for the information!
What scares me is that they are only about 75-100 pounds and they are eating 8 pound chickens... They are now trying to get me, and I just do what I did with my 4h pig, slap the, with you hand on the nostril or on the shoulder, but when these ones are 275 pounds I am running for my life!!!
How's it doing? Waiting can be so aggravating!
Yeah, pigs certainly have some carnivore in them. In Australia they hunt and eat people's lambs and they love meat, eggs, milk, ect. They're also REALLY intelligent. Pigs can be both awesome and dangerous. My mom said our great aunt (or something, I don't remember) actually had a pig kill and try to eat a little girl! That is really sad, and it makes me nervous to get a pig ever (ironically they happen to be one of my favorite animals).
Like the others said, a change in the heating element, a new brooder, and plenty of fun "toys" can keep chickens busy. A place to hide allows them security, some perches let them get their energy out, and some chopped up grass lets them pretend to forage. My chickens love all the fun things I add to their brooders and have never shown aggression while in them (thankfully. I consider half luck).
I hope they start getting along.
Yeah, we've introduced animals before and seen both the good and the bad of it. I have to say that for us the hardest as been cats though. Rabbits are certainly up there too. Chickens take time, but I'll admit I've never introduced an adult in, only chicks or teens so that could be why we haven't had trouble with the intros.
Yeah, be careful out there! Pigs might not be evil (my brother thinks they are) but imagine having a dog that size! They aren't like ruminates, they've got sharp teeth and they are stubborn as all can be. I can't believe how big some of those things can get!
