    Welcome to BYC [​IMG] The old one is being assertive and letting the newbies know who rules the roost. Perfectly normal chicken pecking order behaviour [​IMG]

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join the flock! I agree, totally normal. I'm sure once they have become more acquainted with each other they will all settle down.

    Wishing you the very best of luck and enjoy BYC :frow
