Are cochin bantams supposed to be so mean?

  1. I have three cochin bantam chicks, and they are the most aggressive little snots! They pick on all the other chicks, they've actually cowed a much older chick (probably about two months old and they are four weeks) and they even pick on each other though not nearly as harshly. Its mostly chest bumping between the three of them. Are cochins generally so aggressive? Did I possibly end up with three roosters?

    All of my cochins have been the sweetest chicks imaginable but they do put the other chickens in their place!
