    I am new to BYC, but I absolutely love it. I have a RIR that is about 9 months old. In the past couple months she has gotten really aggressive towards feet. She will be minding her own business then all of a sudden she gets allnpuffed up and charges and pecks your feet. This does not happen ALL the time but enough that it gets irritating. She is the lowest in the pecking order, and all my girls are very friendly and like to snuggle! Does any one have some insight on what her problem might be?? Thanks

    Wow, I have a hen that was just like that she pecked me when I least expected it and she was almost bottom of the pecking order put there was one chicken below her. Anyway, after she started laying again she got a lot nicer!

    She has been laying. She just will just peck you when you least expect it at any random time. I think she wants to be a rooster or something! :rolleyes:
