    I just moved my chicks into a larger temporary cage until I complete their coop and up until now everyone seemed to get along just fine but since I moved them to the new cage I've noticed a lot more fighting. Is this normal? I know introducing new birds can cause this but they've been together for weeks now.

    How many birds, what are the dimensions of the pen, what is the temperature in the pen, what are you feeding them, how old are they?

    What breeds where they? Mixed breeds can often cause problems.
