    Went to check on the girls tonight and everyone was running around, flapping, and posturing on each other. I have never seen them be this aggressive, even my daughters little silkie was taking on chicks twice her size. They have more than enough room. Is this normal? I know they create a pecking order but this was like an all out brawl.

    My 3 week olds were doing that yesterday when I took them out to the run. Chest bumping, chasing, acting crazy. I thought they had all lost their minds, but later they were dozing in the coop together, so it must just be pecking order activity.
