    Everytime my 11yr old DD puts her hands in the brooder all of the chicks run over, jump in her hand and peck like crazy at the freckles on her arms. It is so funny, they are like little wood peckers......until one little BO pinched her skin....ouch!

    They will pick at anything they think they may be able to eat. Be careful because they will pick hard enough to hurt. Don't want your dd afraid of them. Good Luck

    They love rings, ear rings, necklaces any thing shiny or different. They will hurt. Oh, they love eyes too. Be careful. enjoy Jean

    They like glasses A LOT, and those rivets that are near the pockets of your jeans

    Quote:yes, one of my BO's has just started to climb onto my shoulder and peck at my earrings- it doesn't feel too good! I hand fed them treats when they were smaller, but now they are starting to hurt!

    Watch out for the little gourmets who like eyelashes and eyeballs.
