If they are pecking each other.
Once they taste the blood it's very hard to get them to stop.
I've had them at 3 days old ripping the becks off young Japs & Seramas.
I had the problem last year with Snowflake Bobs. I ended up culling a few.
Which was not easy as they where rare then.

I'd keep an eye on it, keep their feet clean (non-fragranced baby wipes are great for this) and if it gets bigger or becomes infected i'd seek medical attention.
