This may seem like an idiotic question but my almost 5-week-old pullets (mostly, I hope) have started pecking our hands quite hard. This is not a big deal for me but it is frightening and painful for my little grandchildren. We want these hens to be "pets" and I don't believe they're being malicious, they just don't realize their own strength. Can chickens be trained like dogs and horses to stop being "mouthy" or rough? Also, could this be a sign of cockerels in our midst? One (a Buff Orpington) is especially large and much fiercer than the rest. Thank you in advance for your comments or suggestions!
