My alpha hen (rhode island red) was very aggressive with me this afternoon. She is usually docile with me. Today she came up to me during their free time and started pecking my shoes and jeans. I picked her up and helf her firmly under my arm , she looked up at me for a while then I put her back down with the others. Then she went after my son in the same manner. I shooed her away and my son and i went to go sit on the patio to watch them for a while. She paced the patio a few times, watching us. I dont think she wanted us near the rest of the flock. We found her behavior very strange. They are over 1 yr so we know she is definatly a girl, but she was aggressive like a rooster. This isnt her usual self.
