    1. What does it look like?
    2. By what age does it appear?

    Whenever I go into the coop with my 3 week olds I'm mobbed by the Delawares. They seem to get great enjoyment out of pecking at my pants, my boots, my whatever is within reach. So far I don't read any of it as aggression, just curious chicks, but I would like to know what behaviors to be on the lookout for as I try to decide which of the boys will have to go.

    I have no idea, being completely new to this myself, but I'd love to hear the answer, too.

    I swear these cute little male packing peanuts know what's in store for them, and I'm afraid they might try to get me before I get them...

    Probably more curious than anything else, My Delawares are very docile although they do love to follow me and my 2 dogs around any time I let them.
