    Rooster charging at me

    I have a one year old Buff Orpington. He has charged at me two times. Both times I was wearing red or pink. And both times a hen was squaking- in distress. It is our first rooster. We got him at 6 months. I was not able to hold him much as he was not hand raised. Someone said to hold the...

    comb pecking!

    I have a little flock of four pekin bantam hens. It’s coming up to a year we’ve had them. They have scraps, of course, and one of them (Belinda) is clearly at the bottom of the pecking order. Belinda was looking very sleepy this morning and had an upset tummy mess in her trousers so we brought...

    Rooster Admitting Defeat?

    Is it normal that upon being caught, realizing the game is over, and obediently sitting down a rooster will cause the feathers on the back of his neck to stick out? What does he mean by that- is it a sign of surrender?

    Duckling aggression

    I’ve got 4 mallard ducklings and they are 3 weeks old now. One of them recently has started biting the other three. She bites them almost every time they get near her and the others always scream and run away. It’s gotten to the point where the three non-aggressive ones don’t want to be in the...

    My pigeon is aggressive and I want to fix this problem

    Unsexed homing pigeon. Over a year old. It used to slap me but now it bites. Not pecking but biting. He will usually do this when he's in the same room as his cage. He sleeps in the cage at night and has food and water, other than that he gets a whole bedroom. I try to hand feed him but he...

    Help! Hard Biting!!

    I have two beautiful turkeys, around 8-10 weeks old. My white one was super friendly, never bit and my little black one did bite. I can’t tell if they are being aggressive or just turkeys. I would post the video of how the white one is biting but the platform only does pictures. The white one...

    Preventing Aggression

    Is it possible to train or prevent a duck from becoming aggressive? Last night my two week old duckling was pecking at me in a very aggressive way. They normally will nibble on me as they would on each other, but last night it was more aggressive than it usually is. She/He was really grabbing...

    Broody-ish Hen

    I have a 7 month Buff Orpington that started laying a little over a month ago. Recently (about two weeks now), she's been aggressive while on the nest. She'll make this awful warning noise if I open up the door, she'll puff up, and she's pecked me hard enough to draw blood the past two days. I...
