:/Just the other day I bought 3 bantam hens, and when I brought them home they were all ok. I asked the people that i bought them from if they would be ok with my 4-5week old youngsters, and they all said yea they should be fine. So like a newbie, i didnt think much of it so i just let them out and watched, but within 30 minutes the biggest hen started going after all the youngsters, and another hen. I was told by my neighbor that also raises chickens that its just the pecking order, and that he saud that i can other wise just put her in with his flock to disapline her out a bit. So what im also wondering will she kill my chicks? What should i do they all have pleanty of food and water to go around, so please i really need some advice!!! Thanks.
