This may not be the best place to ask this question, but maybe one of you can help. I've just gotten some baby chicks. Has been years since I've had any chickens. Anyway do any of you know what I need to do to make them quit pecking each other and pulling out feathers. I went through this years ago, but can't remember what I did. Thanks.

To start with, how old are your chicks? when you say "feathers", it doesn't put me in mind of brand new babies.
