The sweetest chick I hatched, Sweety, turned out to be male. He used to always jump up on my shoulder and want to be held even when the others acted frightened. He has always been their leader and the most intelligent. Of course, now that they are most full grown, none of my birds like to be held, although they will all eat out of my hand. Today I heard Sweety making cawing sounds the same as his father, not a crow, but the warning sound from the back of the throat that all adults make. Later I went out to close the coop since they had been free ranging, and the adolescents were all in front of the door, so I stepped towards them to get them in, and Sweety charged and pecked my foot! I never expected Sweety to see me as a threat. Do you think this just a normal temporary pubescent aggression? Does the way they acted as a chick even matter as to how they will be when grown?
