    My chicks will some put there heads down and stare at each other and then fly around each other and kinda peck at each other. It's more like they are running into each other on purpose... I have no clue because this is my first time having chicks....

    I have one pullet that charges others and pecks. I have three unknown sexes that flap wings and hit the others.

    I don't have an answer for you but I'll be watching this thread to see what others say.

    They are sparring, its natural for them to start around that age to establish "The pecking order" and no this does not mean you have roo's pullets do this as well. [​IMG]

    We got 25 red sex links doing the same thing,and they are definitely all pullets.
