Chickens Pecking Each Other

Recommended Posts


Today I went into the coop where all my chickens were. Kentucky was in the nest box and Colonel came along and tried to move her out the way, but Kentucky didn't budge :o .

So Colonel began pecking her in the neck! :evil: and Kentucky was making a short high pitched noise.

Can anyone help and tell me what they are doing :?:

Have your chickens done this :?:

Any answers welcome :!:

sounds like Colonel is the boss and just letting Kentucky know this.


My big chicken Ella pecks both my little cochins, not all the time - just the occasional "look here im the boss" sort of peck when they are in her way or if she wants to get to the food first!


Nothing to worry about unless its constant and there's injuries.


keep an eye on them maybe :)
