Hi all,

I have a "stupid" ?? We have our chicks out of the brooder today, but because it is raining they are in the living room with my DDs. We are observing behaviors and notice that Happy and Jacob were "courting". They were at opposite sides of the LR and then all of a sudden flew at each other. Happy then squated and offered her rear to Jacob who then bumped into her, pecked her on the head and stood next to her all dominate while she stayed submissive. They are all about 4 weeks old is this just play for them or is it an indicator of the dominate roo, of which we have 2, showing himself? Thanks.
