my 8 hens come running toward me thinking I have a treat. Well my one barred rock keeps coming after me, Yikes. Brought back bad memories of when my rooster kept chasing me. Do hens get aggresive and come after you and what would they do if they got to me. I know I'm bigger but I'm scared of them. LOL
Someone on BYC has a signature that says something along the lines of : dont fall down in the coop, the chickens WILL eat you.
They are just really food oriented and when they see you they think you are gonna give 'em something yummy to eat. I had one hen get a little overexcited by pecking at my leg so I just did the "I'm bigger than you alpha thing" where you just kind of hold them down gently for a minute. They always do the submission squat near me now and are not aggressive.
Don't worry, hens are gentle. ROO's on the other hand...... dinner.
Pick her up (wearing gloves or something for protection from her pecking) and shake her gently while telling her that what she's doing is bad. Hold and pet her and don't let her join the flock for a while. This should teach her a lesson.
