RIR's.
2 weeks old.

They will face off and lower their heads staring at each other.
Then one will make the move and off they go flapping and twisting around.
Then one will grab the other by the back of the neck for a few seconds.

A few minutes later, they are at it again.

Roosters?


Also, on RIRs. Will the roos get tailfeathers before the pullets?

All I know is it is hilarious to watch.
Like little bitty fuzzy sumo wrestlers.

They will do this for awhile. They are establishing their pecking order. They are so funny to watch. They fluff up and run towards each other and do the chest bump. The Roos do Show their feathers before the pullets. Did you get a straight run or were they sexed?

I bought into a straight run of 21 chicks.
I got 5 when they were 8 days old.

If the tailfeathers show up 1st in the roos, then I will end up with a trio.
( will either auction or eat the 2 other roos.)
I have 3 birds with tailfeathers.
