THndrdncr has a post that's similar to this but I didn't want to steal her thread and have been wondering about this she devil. My she devil hen not Thndrdncr So....I have a hen who is all of a sudden being a little witch!!!!! SHe is trying to peck everything and she bowed up on me this morning like a roo!!! SHe had her neck feathers all puffed up and her head down and was about to come at me until I chased her off. When I came back to my senses I tried to go get her so that I could carry her around for a while but she just kept running away and my real roo was getting upset. I couldn't watch my back and front at the same time so I gave up. Is it normal for full grown hens to turn mean all of a sudden? I have noticed an all around increase in attitude amongst my girls this past week. Is it their age or could it be b/c I have started adding vitamins to get rid of their colds???? Would the increase in nutrients cause high emotions like in horses????
