I came home from workk today and one chick was dead, bloodied and torn apart. and the other has a huge gash in its neck! There was blood splattered and smeared alll over the side of the crate. (very large dog crates) They were hatch mates, togetther since birth with 7 otther chicks. I just seperated them into 2 groups to give more space. They were in the crate with 5. I know they re-establish pecking order...but to the death? Of course the dead one was the prettiest one. The one I was going to keep! Damn! This REALLY, REALLY, REALLY stinks. The Victor has been seperated and is in shock. Has a heat lamp and teddy bear, H2O, food. Applied Bluu Kote to the wound. Today, has NOTT been a good day.
