    Hi we are new to having chicks, we have had 25 baby chicks for 1.5 weeks now. We accidentally injured ones toes, the skin is hanging off in a spot. We sprayed blue kote and seperated him from rest. He babys it when walking, when he walks...you can tell it still bothers him. But i tried putting him with flock after stopped bleeding.even with blue kote they pecked at it. What to do? Do i have to raise him seperate forever

    They will peck at it till it heals so you just have to keep him separated till then. Once the wound has closed you can return him to the others.
