I have two broody hens, they sat in eggs for 24 days and then we got them some day old chicks. For two day they were good; but now the hens are pecking on the lightest chicks and the little ones are always in one corner. Is this pecking order or is there something else going on. I have a few black, red and yellow chicks. The hens are pecking just in teh light ones and they are fine with the darkest ones.
I separate them already but I'm not sure if this is a normal behavior and I just should integrate everybody again??
