    Always there's a hen that always bite and kick us one time I tried to pick her up and bit me in the finger and another story is when picked her up and bit me right in the face and started to bleed any way to stop this? PLZ

    Our RIR always did that. We eventually sold him. Just don't pick them up. Pick up some of the nicer ones. If he tries to attack you, Kiev Him a gentle kick. My dad and I did that and he never attacked us after a couple of times. Just don't kick very hard. :)

    You say it's a "him" but it's a she and every time she attacks I gently kick her and she charges back at me :(

    Are you absolutely certain you are dealing with a female?

    I'm so sorry! My mind just transferred it to a rooster since ours was. He should stop if you keep doing it. Or use a stick and whack him on the back. Not too hard unless he keeps it up. Then start kicking him a little harder. Make a lot of noise and make yourself look really big too.

    This Speckled Sussex always follows me around when I come in the run, if I reach down shell latched on my hand and won't let go. I normally pick her up and hold on to her head and rub the sides like a cat and she normally calms down and go on her way.[​IMG]
