As a new Chicken keeper I thought I had read more than enough to be "educated" on the subject, but alas I still have at least one question. I have 40 chickens in a large coop (12x16 with a 4x12 roosting loft) with pine shavings for litter. None of my chickens are quite old enough to lay yet and Im not sure if age pertains to my question or not, but they are about 10 weeks old. I have not seen any evidence of pecking but there are feathers on the ground throughout the coop. They are not very dense but they are numerous enough to make me ask if this is normal? Is this just the product of a pecking order being established or of my birds growing up or is this a potential problem?
