Pecking Order

Our four hens are constantly establishing their "pecking order" hierarchy. Two hens will face each other off with their beaks pointing straight at the other. They hover there for less than a second, usually, before one bird backs down by lowering her head. She has "lost" the competition. We aren't sure what would happen if nobody backed down and they fought. Here are their ranks, as near as we can figure.
-Caramel, the rooster, has the rooster spot. That's the top.
-Summer is probably first hen.
-Chloe is second or third.
-Pharaoh is second, third or fourth.
-Tiger is third or fourth.
