Three of my pullets have a small spat over who gets to roost next to the cockerel. This behavior is pretty recent. It usually only takes a few minutes for them to settle it. Does anyone else have girls that do this? It ends with the "main chick" flying into one of the "side chicks" to knock her off, then taking her place. The one that loses goes and sleep with the other girls. The cockerel seems almost helpless, he sometimes gets knocked off the roost to. He always chooses the end of the roost at first, but he ends up more in the middle with a girl of each side. I think he would actually like to sleep by himself. I mean, why else does he always choose to roost at the end, and then has to move over some or he gets knocked off.
