    Well I am puzzled reason being is because today I was out feeding my hens, as I was feeding they always follow right behind me but not this time. [​IMG]

    One of my Americaunas were jumping and grabbing the back of one of my other Americaunas neck feathers! They just kept chasing each other around and around the run.....[​IMG]

    So what should I do? Just leave them be? Why is she (or he still not sure) doing this? I think they are about 2 months old...[​IMG]

    Thanks for the advice and help! [​IMG]

    You either have a roo or a bossy hen. If no blood is being drawn, there's nothing you need or even should do IMO. They'll settle their fusses.
