    YIKES !! The World wrestling federation has taken up shop in my banty brooder. They're all flying up and landing on each other, leaving the ground and doing chest bumps with each other. The toughman (chick) competition! Is this normal or do I have a bunch of future Roo boys seeing who is tougher or do the girls partake in this also. They'll be a week old tomorrow. It's a little nerve wracking being their mom and all. [​IMG] "Okay kids, play nice" [​IMG]

    Yes. Its always seemed to me that its a bit of both: for fun, and to start figuring out who's the boss.
