    I posted this in the raising chicks topic but thought i'd try here too.

    One of my new chicks has a scab below her bum and the other chicks pecked it off. It bled a little and I just want to make sure that she'll be ok and there's nothing else I should do. THANKS!

    She'll be fine just spray a Q-tip with blue kote and dab it on. It's just her umbilical cord. It will heal in a few days.
