    Its so funny watching my little pullets now. They were a week old Monday and are growing great. I have 52. They've starting acting more like roos then hens. They will run across the brooder and bump chest like they are going to fight. You see them doing it all the time. Its so funny! They'll be eating and then turn and look at each other and their back to chest bumping and pecking air around each other's head.

    BTW..I know they are all pullets because they are sex links, its hard to mistake roos for pullets with the golden comets [​IMG]

    That is so funny to watch too. I have some 3 week old bantam chicks in the brooder box, and they do that too. I thought only the roos do that, so I was worried I had a box full of bantam roos. Glad to know the girls do it too!!
