    I've discovered all the chicken videos on UTUBE!

    Some of them are really informative - almost like being there.

    I saw one video that showed 700 chicks in a building. How in the world can they have a pecking order with that many kept all together?

    I don't know if they do, but think about 700 kids in a high school. They establish a pecking order!

    Yeah, they probably have cliques and gangs just like in school.
    I wonder if there are turf wars...
