help my chicks they keep fighting my newer chicks the four are 2 red islands and 1 and 1 barred rock and buff orp the 2 new ones are scared and running away. every time they get close the 4 peck at the 2. does it have anything to do with the pecking order?

 also if someone can help me find out the breed of the new 2 that would be great

 

 

here is one

 

 

and here is the smaller one

Welcome to BYC :frow Glad you joined us over here! The chicken pecking order is not a pleasant thing, no… It's better to let them sort themselves out and only intervene when they injure each other. For breed and gender guesses, wait until they are a bit older and post some pics of them here:

Enjoy the site!

Are your older birds pulling out feathers on the younger one? The look to have some bald areas- I can't get the pictures to enlarge so not sure. Be certain to put out extra water and feed - in case your birds are bullying them away.
