I have two certain week old chickens attacking a baby chick! How do I stop this?
I agree with Clifford. Maybe seperate them, that way you can keep all if them!farmhand said:Generally speaking, it is not a good idea to house chicks with older birds. You really are just asking for trouble. You can make sure they have plenty of room, are well feed, and are not bored. After that you may have to decide that one or the other has to go. good luck.
Thanks for the advice.farmhand said:Something else you might try is dividing your border into two parts. If you could do it with chicken wire, everyone would still assume they are in the same flock. Thus making it easier to put them together again later. In another month, the one week age difference won't be so great.
You might also consider that having only 3 chicks allows someone to be picked on more especially if he/she is different than the others.
Sometimes someone has to go.
