Hi, my BO gets weird with my EE. I will pet the EE when she squats and the BO will immediately attack by pulling her neck feathers from the back. The other day she jumped and kicked her feet out like a rooster and got my hand. She started doing this about 4 months ago. They are 16-17 months old. I also have two Speckled Sussex and she doesn't seem to care as much about them if they get petted or handled although she does act like she might do something. It looks like she'senforcing taking the opportunity to enforce dominance . She is the uber bird and the one she does this to the most is number two.
