Gypsy's babies are about 3 weeks old. They have been out in a tractor for at least a week, possibly 2, during the day. Today, I thought I'd see how they'd do back in the flock. Gypsy was not high on the pecking order in the main flock. She was high in her little group, but not the main flock. I was working on the pheasant run and heard a lot of chicken noises so I went to investigate. Pearl was fighting with Gypsy. Then, a little bit later, Thelma came up and fought with Gypsy. I was able to break that one up. Then, it got to where anyone who came close to Gypsy, she would peck. The hens (and little roos) basically ignored the wee ones, which I was really glad of. Later, around suppertime, the fights began again. First every time Gypsy went over to the food dish, Thelma would come running over and peck at her. (and allow the chicks to eat). Then the guineas came up with the three packing peanuts. One of the little red roos went at it with Gypsy. Then Captain Bart came up and fluffed out at Gypsy and stared at her, I thought he was going to fight with her too, but he changed his mind and opted for a private moment with her. A little bit later, Bart decided to make up for lost time with Gypsy and Sophie came up and pecked at Gypsy when Bart was on top of her. I was finally able to catch Gypsy and the little ones and get them separated for sleeping. Is this normal stuff? The pecking order being re-established?
