    Hi everyone, I think I hav a problem, my 4 week old chicks, 1 of them which I think 75% Cockrel is fighting with another chick and a little blood has been drawn on his wattles! I'm not sure on wat to do, do I separate them or just let them fight?

  2. I've never kept chicks only ducklings but my thoughts are seperate them, you can't let such youngsters fight it could end in a death which to me wouldn't be heartbreaking and no matter what the sex once you have one bleeding the others will peck at it to

    Hi mama, one is a bramah and not sure of the other, it's a lot smaller than the bramah chick. The cockerel was bleeding on his wattle. But he is the one attacking the bramah. I've put the bramah back in with others now and touch wood no more squabbling. I've put pics on facebooknand people say they care both cocks..
