    I have 3 BSL's and 3 RIR's and I can not call them anything else right now other than BRATS!!! I am not sure if they are just overly "friendly" because they have SO MUCH human contact or if it's just that they are bored and wanting more room to roam. Any suggestions?

    I also am wondering when my chickens will ALL start to look like grown up chickens. One of mine has waddles that are defined and a bigger comb, others have small combs and just maybe the start of waddles, there is one that has hardly any comb and no waddles starting. Is this normal??

    What do they do? Each chicken has it's own growth rate. The one with the biggest comb might be a roo. Do you have any pics?

    How old are they?
    How much space do they have?

    Peck at you, wont let you in the coop cause they block it. Jump on each other and knock each other outta the way. They are 20 weeks old today!! They have a 12 foot run thats 4 feet high and 4 feet wide. Plus the coop area.

    They sound like they think they are the boss.
