Out of my 8 chicks, I can not tell who top hen is. There 3 older girls are dark brahma, RIR, and a EE. At first I thought it was the RIR due to her jumping/pecking on everybody in the brooder. My RIR has attacked me 3 times also when she was 10-12 weeks. I integrated my two flocks and I thought my EE took over as dominant hen. She even went to jail for a week due to excessive bullying to the others. She came back as top hen, but her attitude was much better. Now, these past two days my dark brahma is taking over. She is flapping her wings challenging the others until they back away. I saw her peck the other two older chicks. I'm assuming she's top hen? She's much nicer to the younger ones then the RIR or EE. How can I tell which one is top hen? So many people seem to know who theirs are. I have 3 chicks that call for food, 2 that watch the sky and 1 that puts everyone to bed. They are pretty nice to each other so far and seem to live in harmony. I hope it stays that way too!
