    So I let my little 4 week BO's out next to the 7 week BO's for introductions just to see how they would all do. And the older ones just kinda stared curiously at them but went about there buisness pecking at the floor... then daisy (one of the yonger ones) ran over and pecked the big guy and took what goody he found on the floor!!! I thought that chick is crazy!! [​IMG] Well still the big guy went about his buisness and a few moments later she ran over and did it to him again!!! [​IMG] I'm thinking there might be a beatdown in order... but still he went about his buisness. And what do you know a few minutes later she came around the corner yet again~ *PECK* Hahaha I think this time I could actually see the look in his eyes [​IMG] So I decided to grab the little ones up before they caused to much trouble!! Is that normal that the little one would be a bigger pecker??

    Leave them together, they'll work it out. It's much easier to integrate them when they are that young, than later on when they are more set in their ways.

    Little ones are also learning by pecking, don't forget that. And size has little to do with rank in the pecking order.

    My smallest runs the show...so far. It's funny to watch.

    I agree w/ the others, let them sort it out.
