    I got some bantams and the older chickens are picking at them...they've already established the pecking order! What's going on? Now the bantams are starting to pick at each other. The male bantam wards off the other chickens and protects his little girl, but then he attacks her. But, they're not mating. Can anyone tell me what this is?
