    I put my 3 week old chicks in the outside coop during the day (with a box and light) and they go CRAZY. Flying everywhere chest bumping....do they have to re-establish a pecking order every time they are moved, or, are they just having fun with all the room?

    I think it's a bit of both. They're running about and enjoying the room to stretch their wings, but at the same time, at 3 weeks they should still be working on their pecking order.

    They sound healthy and happy!
