    Look what we caught in our trap....

    So sorry for your loss. We lost one of our 4 hen 2 weeks ago to a predator. We never were able to find out what did it. We live in the middle of a big city.

    I ran from my rooster

    If you want to keep him I would try showing him you are boss. Hold him down for few min, grab him by the legs and hold him upside down, peck him on the back of his neck. You can not just give in to him being a bully.

    One RIR hen still attacking me.

    Thank all of you for the input. I will start being a less tolerant and peck on on the head when she does this. I also think pushing her away may help. maybe not hand them any more. I also like the idea off picking her up that way she know I am the big chicken in this yard. Thanks Again.

    Hen biting my hand

    Great info and I will try that next time and let her know I am not one of the other hens she can pick on. I will do the peck back to her and see if this helps. She was nice and sweet till she matured and now think she is the boss over me and the other hens.

    Hen biting my hand

    I have a hen about 4 months old that grabs the back of my hand and punches me very hard. She has broken the the skin twice now. Why would she do this. She seems to be the most matured one.
