    They are going to be fine. They need to establish a pecking order and so on. Your chicks are super cute! [​IMG]

    Congratulations on the new chicks! Some pecking is normal to establish the pecking order. Just keep am eye on them to make sure it does not to bad. It is not likely there will be any problems. My 2 and 3 year olds still peck at each other at times to remind each other who is the boss.

    I am anxiously waiting for Apr 6 when I get my new chicks. I will be getting about 20 this year.

    I see you have newspaper in your brooder. This should be replaced with paper towels. Newspaper is slippery and can cause leg problems.
