Chest Bumping

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I have 4 hens, a year old.  No rooster.  They have plenty of food, fresh water, shelter and a 50' x 100' enclosed pen safe from predators. All produce an egg a day.  This morning was the first time I saw Daffolip chest butt, neck peck and circle Bobbie Chicklet.  It was short lived, but Flutterby sounded an alarm to get my attention while Tulidil kept her distance.  Is this just a pecking order realignment?
