My son said to me last night that Pokey, one of our bantam pullets, bit him last night when he went to make sure they were all in before closing their doors. I thought that was a little strange, but didn't think much of it. She's normally super sweet and docile. She squats for him to pick her up normally. Then today, I just went to gather eggs. She was in there sitting on the eggs and bit me when I reached in! Ouch! So I tried to pet her, b/c she really is one of the pets of our flock, and I couldn't believe her. She puffed way up, made horrible Jurassic Park noises, and attacked me! As soon as I backed of, she settled back down on the eggs and just hissed every time I moved. This is her a few min go, taken with my phone. So if she is broody, is she too young to give some chicks to? I have been hatching the past week. I have over 30 chicks right now with 5 more (including one of hers!) due to hatch this weekend. They are all bantam eggs. Is she too young to trust to be a good mom? I have a few more days to make sure she is really broody before they hatch. Just wondering... Thanks!
