Welcome to BYC :frow The old one is being assertive and letting the newbies know who rules the roost. Perfectly normal chicken pecking order behaviour :)

Hi welcome-byc.gif

Glad you could join the flock! I agree, totally normal. I'm sure once they have become more acquainted with each other they will all settle down.

Wishing you the very best of luck and enjoy BYC frow.gif

Welcome to BYC! I'm glad you joined us! :)

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
