Here are 8 reasons why chickens fight
1. The hens are too crowded 2. There’s a rooster problem 3. They need more food and/or water 4. They smell blood 5. There’s a new chick(en) 6. Someone needs a bath 7. There’s a predator nearby 8. The hens are bored

The most extreme example of overcrowded hens is in the case of factory farming. In this situation, they will peck at each other and fight to get some personal space.
