    All my "girls" are so lovey, well they atleast let me rub and hold them and seem to enjoy it.. Except for one. The one I have suspected as one of two possible Roos has become really aggressive. He (or she) will charge me when I open he brooder. I go to scoot him back and he will peck the tar out of me! BTW they are 3.5 weeks old!

    Question is are hens usually aggressive or can I pretty much mark this a check on his probally a roos list?? If he is a roo and keeps this aggression up then he will be culled in a couple of weeks [​IMG]..
