I have 2.5 week old chicksI have 2.5 week old chicks and found this week that one small chick was pecked to death on Saturday. All of her feathers from her back end were completely gone and her skin was exposed. This happened over a 4 hour period of time. We separated her out but she did not make it through the night. This morning (5 days later) We found a second one pecked to death as well. She was a bigger chick which is surprising. Her but was clearly pecked, but she did not have any feathers missing. Is there a reason why this is happening? what can I do to prevent losing any others in the same way? It is a bit devastating.
