i have 4 chicks that are 8-9 weeks old and they all do that cock fighting thing! my feed store said that the hens will learn to do it from the boys....is this true? or do i have all boys? that would totally suck!
I have silkies and they all do this! Even the smallest ones....its like they stretch up and are ready for battle. I hope someone answers this for you because I would like to know also. Don't you just love the Silkies!
I have been watching mine do exactly that and thought it was just part of the pecking order thing. For mine, it seems to be the same 1 or 2 hens that are establishing pecking order with the rest. The kids and I think it is funny to watch them do this.
