    That's pretty much how it goes. One moment they're teeny tiny the next they're big birds.

    My chicks are 13 weeks today. They keep me confused Everyday a different chicken is at the bottom of the pecking order. They make me think of when I worked in an office with 6 women and somebody was always at odds with somebody. Then it would change on being at odds with somebody else. When do they get their pecking order in order? I am sitting here now with a barred rock on my lap who is mad because I let the golden comet sit on my lap as well. They are at odds right now.

    Homer the Rooster let’s everybody know he is the boss except my little speckled Sussex. She is independent. Has nothing to do with the others but stays up under the rooster and won’t let others near him when she is beside him. My Welsummer hen and Barred rock want to boss the other hens. Each day somebody gets to be the picked on except the rooster and the sussex. Is this how it will always be?

    Maybe. If one has an off day and is higher in the hierarchy they can get knocked back a place of two. Doesn't mean it'll stay that way though.
