    My 2 three week old chicks are started to lose their fluff and grow feathers and have also begun pecking at each other and hitting each other with their wings. However, when I try to separate them, they begin chirping loudly and don't stop until I put them back together. Is the fighting connected to their growing or is this normal for overly attached sisters?

    They're chickens. It's what they do.

    Just be sure you have lots of good feed for them and lots and lots of space for them to carouse in.
