HELP! one of my pullets (around 4 months) has started attacking us for no apparent reason . it first happened when my mom went to collect a loose feather in front of her and she pecked my mom's hand. my chicken has attacked me 5 times, all of them on my feet. (i like to walk around bare-foot sometimes) i think that since the time is growing near for them to start laying eggs, she might be getting aggresive about eggs a little too early. can this be helped, is this something like a chicken mood swing?
