    Wondering if they are pullets- the #2 chick is getting nippy- she is a BO, the #3 is also BO and sweet and gentle...as the #1 is - a RIR

    The only one I even suspect roo on is #1, but still looks more pullet than cockerel from here.

    whew! ok, now as far as nipping- is that just curiosity? or is it a pecking order thing.... like she maybe is trying to be dominant?

    I have had several who, as babies, just liked to bite me!!! [​IMG] None turned out more aggressive as adults. I think they are just sampling their environment. [​IMG] My mother has an adult hen who loves to bite, too, and she is as sweet as honey. Just takes a little bite every chance she gets. [​IMG]
