I got this Dominique pullet that is about 20 weeks old. She turned aggressive a few weeks ago and I can't seem to calm her down. She always makes the "ground threat" call when I'm around and tries her best to peck at me. She has gotten to the point where by simply trying to grab the eggs inside the coop, she tries to peck at me, and always causes bleeding where she pecks at (sometimes a small amount, sometimes quite a bit for a little a peck, and it HURTS). I've tried holding her, but it never works out because the whole time she's screaming the "ground threat" call while scratching my arms in an attempt to escape. I don't know what to do now. I don't really want to send her to freezer camp, so I'm trying my best to try and calm her down. It seems like any attempts to get near her is just asking for her to attack me again. What should I do?
