DEVIL CHICK !!!
Hi...I bought 4 cute little chicks at an inner urban farmers market (I live in Puerto Rico). They can't be much more than a week old. One Easter Egger, one Buff Orpington and two Polacas (one light and one dark). The Easter Egger chick viciously attacks the dark Polaca on the back and wings, yanking feathers and tossing their bloody feather stumps around my chick nursery. I've separated the chicks, two in one nursery and two in the other. After a few days I put them all in the same box...The behavior started all over with the same two chicks! What the!!!! Do I need a Chicken Eggs-orcist or something? Advice Please.
This could be a problem with nutrition. It is important to be feeding a complete starter feeder.
