    Depending on their age. If they are older they probably are.

    Take a good look at that chick they're pecking on and be sure it isn't injured, have pasty butt or somehow unhealthy. Usually with simple pecking order things they don't all peck on just one. And be a bit more patient with replies. There really aren't all that many on at 5am Central Time.
