So my 5 week old chicks (layers and meaties) are free ranging for part of the day, every day now. They are allowed to go anywhere they want, with me hovering nearby. The thing is, every time the chicks have an encounter with the adult birds it's the brahmas that back off. Yesterday, one of my light brahma hens (Jezebel, who is also the largest of the hens) came up around the chicks out of curiosity, but when a chick approached her Jezzie went running for the hills, squawking the whole way. What gives?
