We have 34 hens, 5 bantums, 2 light brahmas, 5 production reds, and the rest EE. I sat out there with them today and it is not the first time I wondered how to tell pecking order. It is obvious the bantums are bottom, but that is it. But no one picks on them, they just give way to the bigger birds, no one prevents anyone from eating, nesting, etc. We have 12 x 8 coops on each side of a 12x24 building, connected by 8x4 hall. Each coop has a large run on each end of building. They have lots of room and each coop has plenty nests, each has food and water. Edited to add they all appear to roam freely through both runs, coops, hall without problem. Is the pecking order there but just invisible? Just curious if anyone has any input, not that important but I have been wondering. Thanks.
