    Okay I just got my two black Wyandotte bantams one is a couple months old the other is POL. The POL pullet is quite aggressive... She puffs up and tries to bite me when I go to pet her. But it seems fear based as afterwards she cowars and if I lift my hand she ducks like I'm going to hit her. How can I resolve this?

    Stop trying to handle her. Sit with her and she might in time get tamer.
