Chicken Pecking


6 Years
Dec 27, 2013
I have three backyard hens, all white leghorns, 10 months old.One of the girls has been packing and "biting" me, Only me not my mom or dad. Whenever i go outside she follows me around and will sometimes charge at me and peck at my feet and legs. Other times i will be sitting in the grass by them and she will come and grab hold of my finger, until i shake her off. This has been happening for 3-4 months now, and i would really appreciate any reasons why this is happening, or how i can stop it. Thanks so much.

She thinks that she is dominant to you. You must convince her otherwise. When she comes at you, grab her and force her firmly to the ground. Hold her there until she stops struggling - then release her. If she comes back at you, repeat until she gives up. You are bigger than her. You can convince her that you are also dominant. Good luck.
