Chicks jumping on one another?!?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So I have this really sweet chick named cream, and a really sweet chick named peanut. Peanut will run into my hands to be held. When cream started flying out of the brooder to sit on me, peanut started flying at her, and sitting on top of her! I have stopped this asap, because cream starts screaming. Is this normal? I don't think so, but I was wondering if there was anything wrong. This has only happened twice, and maybe peanut might be jealous? Help please! I will try to post a video if I get one.

Normal chick behavior.  They start mock fighting/playing to establish the pecking order as chicks.

Friends are the family you make for yourself.
There are no coincidences- only providences.
