Fighting Chicks! My four Easter egger chicks that are 4-5 weeks old peck at each other and sometimes even fight over bugs such as crickets. Some times they flap their wings and leap at one another. Is this normal or are they fighting and how do I get them to stop fighting?

Normal...they're already working out their pecking order. They start young! :)

Yes, they play fight. It cracks me up. Crowding can make that play fighting become real tho so make sure they have plenty of space.
