    My baby Polluelo has been very grouchy today he usually lets me carry him and kiss him and today he poked both of my eyes and he wouldn't let me touch him . Idk if he is a sheeeee ...I just guessed he's a male chicken but who knows I just want to make sure this is normal- do chickens get aggressive after a while

    He/she is a cutie. I have a 12 day old chick that bites me sooo hard, yet she's the friendliest out of 18 [​IMG]... I started to "peck" her back with my finger when she bites me, she doesn't bite quite as hard anymore. Maybe it's just a personality thing? I dunno...

    First you need to wear glasses around the chick, he can cause serious injury with a peck to the eye. Second no, you don't need to tolerate this. Pop him in the head with your finger, to show him it hurts back. Either sex could be aggressive. If he/she doesn't improve send him to freezer camp
