I came in the house yesterday to my 2mo old chicks fighting like crazy.
Looks like 7 roos n 2 hens (roos combs and waddles are distinct.
Separated 3roos n the others are content with each other.
The bite marks on these lil guys...omg!
I didn't realize the would be so aggressive so young. It was cute when they were fuzzy but now they holding on with every bite and leaving marks on one another.
They are definitely fighting have cock.
Any tips, pointers, things to look or for?

Several things come to mind;
How much space do they have? It should be about two sq. ft. per bird at this age.
What breeds? Game cockerels will fight with enthusiasm at a young age.
Toys? Hiding places?
Diet? Eating good chick starter?
Can you move some (most? all?) of these boys elsewhere?
