Hello all! I have three chickens hatched 11/19/2011 whom I added to my flock of 12 hens in December 2011. I suspect one of them is a cockerel since I see a few saddle feathers, but they are both silkie mixes and the other is too fluffy to tell but has no visible saddle feathers and a much smaller comb. Neither is crowing or laying. Now two of them are fighting. They fight only when they are outside to free range (not in the coop) and go at it pretty determinedly (facing each other with neck feathers flared, pecking, flapping, locking beaks) but there is yet to be any serious damage, just a spot of blood on each comb after the most recent encounter. The adult hens step in and peck the one who I suspect is a cockerel to try break it up. They stop after about 20 minutes. Come evening, though, I can always find them snuggled up next to each other on the perch. This is the 3rd day in a row of this behavior. I'm used to a bit of fighting when the pecking order might change, but this is a bit more persistent. Do I need to get rid of one of them, or is it just adolescent hormones that they'll get over? Thanks!
