Well, ChickenDuck is officially a roo. He was fine today, but I noticed just how much bigger (bulkier?) he really is compared to everyone else. And his comb is MUCH bigger and more red than anyone else's. Well, anyway, they're still spoiled so I'm in the habit of "tucking them in" before I head off to bed. So I go out and at first no one notices me even come in, so I just stand in the corner and watch. I watch as ChickenDuck knocks down one of the other boys, scratches him, bites him, pokes him, grabs onto his neck feathers and hangs on while the other guy is trying to run away and is screaming for help. Then, he moves on to doing the same thing to another, then another, then a girl, and so on. Finally he sees me, and by this point I am just in shock. But he comes waddlin over and doin his cute little purr-cluck he does just for me and nudges me to pet him. This is normal right? They are 6.2 weeks old today. I thought I would have quite awhile before things got rough between the boys. Do I need to seperate them soon? I don't think I have the room! I've already divided the coop with chicken wire to raise the new chicks that are coming next week and then divided THAT down the middle so I have one side for the broilers. I used the area under the nestboxes, so it all fits nice, and is draft free for the new little bitties. So, ChickenDuck is trying to do what? Make sure he is Top Dog? Is he just being a bully, or is this what they do? Should I worry about the other chickies? So far, no blood...Thank Goodness!
