    I have 12, two week old frizzle bantams.

    A good number of them like to jump at each other and bump 'chests'.

    Do ONLY boys do this ?
    Or will girls do this as well ??

    Thanks,
    Lee

    Everybody will fight. Even adult hens can fight. Roos just more prone to it.

    girls will do it as well. most of the time when they do that their just playing (believe it or not.. chickens do play that way).
