    Pecking Order Change

    My Black Sex Link has always been the largest of the 3 chicks I purchased on Aug 8, 2011, 8 weeks now. I think the size for a while allowed my Black Sex Link to be dominant and now littlest of the 3, my RIR is running up to the Black Sex Link and jumping up in the air with a bit of a squabble and then she walks with that I got you prancing kind of strut. It is very funny to me. Then the RIR will cut in front of the other birds today and they moved with her as she walked sliding off without a look back leading the Poultry Gang of the Pacific Northwest.

    My young RIR is still a bit on the bossy side this morning but I am not sure if she is he boss or what? Any signs or things to look for?
