    Can to much scratch make my chickens aggressive? They are 19 weeks old and seem to really be testing each other the last few days.

    No, but it will make them fat. They're just working out the pecking order, it's got nothing to do with too much of anything.

    Thanks! Hope they settle down soon. I am keeping my eye on one, she seems a little worse than the others. She pulls at their feet when they are on the roost.

    With the cold weather coming on I have increased their scratch ration. No change in attitude. As the previous post said, pecking order.
