Last october we ordered a bantam special from Ideal, ofcourse straight run, and got the packing peanut turkens anyways, anyways, from the time the chicks were about 3 days old, they would play, but the turkens would all do the "baby cock fights" with one another, and several bantams would join in,it was cute as doodles,

but the 3 week old chicks we have now, are all girls, expect for Big Momma
, and the guineas wich are strightrun, and while they play and chase one another, and have a good ole' time, I've not seen any signs of dominance between them yet.

is it just that hens are slower to do the whole whos on charge thing, I know our adult hens are ALWAYS bickering amongst each other

IME the boys will constantly do the chest bump and "evil eye" with one another. I have one roo now, he tries to start things once in a while, but the girls kind of avoid it. They do squabble once in a while, but it is a different kind of squabble.
