    It is normal. I have 2 separate coops and each have 4 silkies. I am trying to combine them into one flock. The older ones peck at the younger ones and it scares them. I think it will get better soon for you. Tomorrow is the day we make it final and the younger one will not be taken out at the end of the day. from what i see with mine....it gets a little better every day. Hang in there.......soon they will be buddies.
