    One of my chicks has started pecking my legs whenever I'm in the coop or run. I'm sure they are just curious pecks but it still hurts. She is only 10 weeks old so still pretty young. Is this something she'll outgrow? It's really hot and humid here so wearing pants right now is not realistic or I would.

    Yes they will go after anything odd in color such as the scabs or hair on your legs and lint on your shirt. They arnt trying to hurt you don't worry.
