One of my five week old rhode island red chicks has taken the habit of biting. They still havent learned to go in the coop so im putting them in at night and one of thr reds bites the bajeezus out of me-only at night. I carry them all day without incident but at dusk-watch out! She/he (not sure if its Boot or Scoot getting me) will run to me in the dark just to grab skin and twist like a dog rending meat off a bone. Drew blood tonight! Theyre still small so it isnt a huge problem now-but id like this habit broken before i have to wrestle off an 8lb bird! Especially if its Boot, who i suspect is a roo.
