I have 9 week old chicks and two of those are Barred Rocks. A while back, they were getting tight quarters in the brooder at night, and THAT is when I noticed a lot of my chicks suddenly had bloodied tails with missing feathers. They were ONLY in the brooder at night. And that is when the attacks were happening. I finally realized who was doing it because the two of them don't have missing tail feathers, and I have been watching and they are running down the others and grabbing them by the tail feathers. I even noticed them eating a feather or two. Not always, though, but today I witnessed them scarfing down a couple of feathers. Anyway, they have been in a large enough space for them for a couple of weeks now, and the BR's are still going after the other chicks. Which means it's tough for the others to heal up. Although, I know they are healing, because I'm checking the injured ones daily and they are growing back little pin feathers and their skin is looking nice. So the attacks must be less than they were-- but I caught both BR's running after the other chicks today. So here's the Question!! What do I do with these two little BR pullets??? I would rather NOT give them away, but try to figure out another option. Maybe separate them out for a while?? Suggestions? And once they are picking the feathers from others.. will they ever stop?? Why are they doing this?
