    I was just having a thought earlier
    what if the first-in-command in the flock died
    and no. 2 did not want to be at the top of the pecking order
    would they still have to move up into that position?
    kind of like promotion haha

    They would work it out. Sometimes they are lost for a couple days, but they do get it.
