I hatched two turkey poults five weeks ago and after their second day they were still not eating and drinking so it was suggested to me here that I buy some chicks to teach them how. So off DH ran to the feed store to buy me some chicks. He picked up two day old barred rock chicks. I handle these birds every day and they sit in the middle of my dining room so they are very used to people. But for some reason these chicks are crazy and MEAN! Every time I open the cage and stick my hand in they get this crazy look in their eyes and start attacking me! I've been through quite a few generations of chicks now and have never EVER seen anything like this. Today I was changing their water like I do every day and one of them actually attacked my hand, pulling on my skin with her beak and drawing blood. Needless to say they are for sale on craigslist right now! But I was very curious if anyone else had experienced kamikaze chicks like these before!!
