    When chickens are fed, do they get aggressive if they are hungry?

    I'm thinking about getting chickens [​IMG]

    mine don't really. I just got back from a show today with them...and they were hungry when we got home, but no one was aggressive to each other during the trip, really.

    I always have feed in the feeder and give them time to free range for bugs...

    Mine get all worked up & excited if it's something special. Today they got 2 egg whites and were so hyped it was funny.

    I think it is funny, they can get so excited when its a good treat. They run and squawk and put on a good show. My cockerels are pushy sometimes but they don't test me too much. They have been so much more enjoyable than I ever thought. I think of them as pets not as just livestock as most people here on BYC do.
