I hope I'm in the correct area for my problem? I was recently given a hen and her 4 x day old chicks. The chicks are now a month old. The mother hen is extremely aggressive, so much so that I have to wear welders leather gloves to handle her and to replace food and water. A couple of times she has pecked me good. I am wondering if this serious aggressive behavior is normal or not? And, if I should consider seperating the chicks, as I don't want them to grow up to be aggressive. They are Thai native chickens if that helps. Am I correct in assuming they are a type of game chicken?
