    Not sure whether Fingers is a pullet or a roo. She/he is 7 weeks old, and has a very smallish comb, but what is making me think she is a he is that it will charge at me, and has for quite a few weeks now. Then just today it tried to fly at me feet first when I was still walking up to their coop. Mind, these are my first chickens, but it just seemed to be similar to what I have read here. [​IMG]

    Nope, just a very confident pullet. Start pushing her away, just cause she's female doesn't mean you have to let her be aggressive to you. Don't let her approach your space for several days and see how things go. Trust me, you're not going to make her scared of you by shooing/scaring/stomping/pushing her away. You might, however, save yourself some nasty pecks.
