    My female turkey brutally attacked my male turkey

    I have two turkeys, one male one female, and are both very friendly and docile. They've pecked at each other but nothing too serious . Today when I went out the females beak was covered in blood and the male turkey's snood was ripped open and he had blood all over his face. What caused this...

    Chicken wont stop charging at me and trying to bite my feet.

    It's been going on awhile. I'll be walking by our chicken and she'll either be fine or she'll make a charge at me and nip my foot. She has broken skin several times. She doesn't do this to my partner at all. Though she has had attitude problems before but is generally good and we can both pick...

    Duck bullies

    I have two female ducks and two female chickens and the ducks are very aggressive towards the chickens. It’s mostly the biggest duck picking on the smallest chicken. It’s been happening for a while but it used to be relatively tame, until recently she started pinning the other down and ripping...

    Drakes Killing Eachother

    I see a lot of posts about drakes fighting eachother over mates, but barely any posts about my specific situation. My Peking drake was limping yesterday, and today my other two drakes (a khaki and a mallard/Rouen) were actively trying to kill him. I separated the Peking, but later found out that...

    New 3 month old Barny

    Hi all I just added a blue laced barnevelder pullet to my flock and I decided to get one because I’ve read that they are super docile but this one is super skittish and she pecks me(sadly I can’t return or exchange)… does anyone else have skittish ones or did I just get bad luck? I’m looking...

    Aggressive hen out of nowhere

    Hello! One of my hens (RIR) out of nowhere decided to start attacking one of my other girls(silkie). Neither of them are at the top of the pecking order and the RIR is only aggressive to this one hen and not the others. I thought it would resolve after a day or so but it seems to be getting more...

    Rooster is out of control.

    Quick back story: I’ve got 6 fairly large pullets (13 weeks) and a newly added rooster (adult, not sure on age), and soon will be adding a hen (she’s about 2). We have a lot of cats and hawks, so I’ve had suggestions to get a Roo, hence why he’s here. I do not mind a crow now and again, and I...

    Hi, I recently introduced my older hens to my 3 5 month old Wyandotte pullets and my 2 Ameraucana cockerel and pullet that are 4 months old and one of my older hens has accepted the 3 wyandottes but for some reason has it out for the 2 Ameraucanas. She’s pecking at them to the point where...

    Jealousy over holding other hens?

    Hello, I have an odd situation. I have 4 barnevelder hens that just turned a year old. All are happy and laying, and are allowed to free range a couple hours daily. They get along rather well, despite the normal mild peck towards each other here and there. Before their first molt, only 2 of...

I hand feed them treats & even a slice of pizza now & then. lol However, lately there is one that has gotten aggressive towards me. Keep in mind, these...

    Flock agression

    Hello- I’ve had backyard chickens going on about 8 years now. I’ve got 3 different ages in my flock but the last integration I did was about 2 or 3 years ago so nothing has really changed with my girls. Recently I had an australorpe go into molt and one day I noticed that the back of her head...

    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...

We have offered to adopt three Red Sex Link hens (these ones are Rhode Island Red / White Leghorn) from a friend who has too many eggs to manage.

    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...
