It finally happened I got bit! Hard! Many many years of different breeds of chickens and many many pecks but this was a malicious bite! It was a BLRW cockerel 4 1/2 mos old and he's huge and he's beautiful. I'm thinking I want to keep this guy so I'm wondering if there is anyway of breaking this behavior or could it be some deficiency that he thinks could be made up in human flesh? Interestingly I also have 2 month old BLRWs growing out from another breeder and these also have shown signs of wanting to bite - not just peck. Could this be a behaviour more common in certain breeds? And is it possible to show a chicken known to bite? Maybe just hang a sign around its neck: Examine at your own risk! Thanks for any thoughts on this!
