    I have 6 pullets (maybe 3 months old) in a large coop. They do not yet free range, waiting to be a bit older.

    Yesterday they started pecking at each others faces, they have plenty of good food and water. Lots of space, not cramped.

    Is it just time to free range or what are some reasons they are being aggressive?
