    Each morning when I let the chickens out , I have noticed one of my Roosters will "pick" on the others..whoever is closest . He will pull on thier combs..and make them cry out !!
    I have another Roo in the flock who does not do this . Is this the Natural Pecking order going on, or do I have a Bully Rooster ??!?!? They are about 9 weeks old....various breeds, the Roo is an Americuana/EE......

    He is asserting himself as head of the flock.
