Are your smallest ones very aggressive, or those who've had a hard start?

    I've noticed that my really small chickens or the ones who fell behind for some reason, tend to be really aggressive towards their peers. For example, my beloved late Mira was born late, and deformed, and thus wasn't able to walk or eat for the first three days of her life, and ended up being syringe-fed, and stunted as a result. She was extremely sweet with people, but her foster mother(another nasty-but-nice-type who spent most of her time fence-fighting with the other Seramas, or trying to pound our dogs into the floor), was terrified of her. Has anyone else had this experience with theirs? Thanks. Just curious.
