    What do you think I can do? Still nothing major but its the funniest thing - all of the peanuts are just bossy - pushing others away from food - or stepping on them..

    I'm sure all normal - but it is ONLY all those mean boys.

    It sounds funny. [​IMG] Just kind of keep an eye on the little stinkers, to make sure no one gets hurt. Good luck!

    Maybe they sent you meaties as the packing peanuts. lol.

    Chickens are designed to sort it out, pecking orders are decided nearly from hatching.

    You could always put out an extra feeder, that helps.
