This is my first time raising chickens. I got 6 brown leghorns, 6 white leghorns, and 6 red sex links. One of the sex links died within the first two weeks. It never seemed to develop like the others and quit eating and drinking. I tried to save it, but it passed. The other 17 are doing tremendously! One thing I've noticed is that the leghorns are very agressive towards the other chicks.

This is my first time with chicks as well. I have 3 white leghorns and they are indeed aggressive. With my golden sex links as well as each other and me! I tried to scoot one out of the way while trying to get a mealworm to one of the smaller chicks, and she pecked me for not giving it to her.

We are new to chickens also. Does the aggression come out as they get older?
We have 2 white leghorns, 4 road Island Reds and 4 Jersey Giants. They are all between 3-4 weeks old. The Leghorns are the friendliest. Are we just lucky or will this not last?
