    Rooster keeps biting my hens. 4 month old Bantam black frizzle Cochin.

    Hello, I have a 4 month old bantam frizzle Cochin rooster mixed with my flock of 11 4-5 month old chickens and one other rooster that is extremely docile (standard breed size). Now the bantam bites the hens in the neck and tail area. My mother in law wants me to get rid of it but they’re my...

    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...

    Pinless Peepers and Guinea Fowl

    My guinea fowl are being absolute bumholes and harassing my chickens. I’m looking into pinless peepers and bumpa bits as a last resort before I might have to rehome them to a guinea flock. I asked for females but pretty sure I got given 4 males, never seen an egg the whole time I’ve had them...

    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...

    Larger duck attacking mallards

They aren’t aggressive to me but I tried putting my 15 week old Cochin pullet with them for a minute and they pecked are her and I...

    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...

    Hen keeps attacking us.. Help!

    Hi friends! I have a little trio of hens (used to be four, but sadly we lost our sweet Aunt Jemimah). They're all 8 months old and we raised them together from day 1.. Spent lots of time handling them and hanging out with them... 3 (now 2) of them are very social, but for some reason the 4th...

    Cockerel Keeps Attacking Me!

    I love him, but today he poofed up, pecked and flew at me! Usually I can just hold him like a cat, but he was just being a jerk today! Anyone know how to calm him down?

    Are muscovy males aggressive?

    I have four other ducks and was thinking about getting some Muscovy Ducks. I know that the breed is pretty popular but I just wanted to know if the males are aggressive. I have a dog who tries to get the ducks sometimes and ive had them die from trying to protect the flock and being too...

    Rooster Gone Sour

    Hello. I'm new here. I work on a historic farm that is open to the public and help take care of 30+ chickens (we got some new babies and more on the way). One of the roosters, who my friend named Clux, has recently lost his dominance. Over the summer, he used to have a ton of hens following him...

    I need advice

    I have Ducks at home and a major raccoon problem. I heard that guineas are great at protecting other animals but I know nothing about them. Will I be ok if I keep them with ducks? Are they aggressive? Will they fly away? How many do I have to have? Let me know everything I need to know bout...

    PLEASE help me

    Okay, so I have absolutely no idea what to do right now. I’ve had a little orphaned duckling for almost a month now. He hadn’t been with any other ducklings, & I knew ducklings weren’t supposed to be alone like that so I finally went and got a Muscovy duckling as a companion. At first, they were...

    I have two Bronze turkeys, a tom and a hen, 2 1/2 months old, I got chickens at the same time, and have raised them all together and they have all gotten along quite famously! I was thrilled with how social they all were until yesterday. My Tom started first by pecking one of my chickens, not...

    Tom turkey aggression

    Since we've hatched out poults, now 2 months old, Tom has gotten more aggressive. Before we had poults he was fine I could touch him and he'd be kinda scared or content with it, now if I get too close he might peck or jump kick, and tries to charge when I turn my back. It's not that bad since...

    Aggressive Rooster needs more hens?

    My big rooster got pretty protective once he got his hens but he's getting even more so lately. He only has 2 hens, would getting more hens for him help? I figured maybe he's being overprotective since he only has the 2 and if he had more he'd mellow out a bit. I was thinking I might just get a...

Our Rhode Island Red is the one not brooding and the other two have taken up the preferred, previously shared nest.
