  1. i had a chick that had her bottom clogged with poop. i wiped it off, and i saw a few chicks pecking at her when i put her back in. could they hurt her?

    They could hurt her, but chances are they won't. Keep an eye on all of them for a little while. These babies will make you crazy - but trust me it's worth it.
     
  3. ok :)
    if she gets hurt we have another pen for her to recover in.

    If they're still picking on her and she's dry I'd be concerned, and know that those mean little buggers can peck another chick to death faster than you can say OMG what happened.
     
  5. ok :)
    i will check her out this morning see if she needs to be separated! thanks you guys!
