    I have a flock of buff orps that are now 4 months old...the runt of the litter has been and continues to be quite aggressive. She pecks my legs and tries to jump on my back when perched on the coop. Is there any kind of methodology to squelch this behavior?

    It's definitely not a rooster...maybe she thinks she is...gender confusion.
