Hi, I am new to BYC! I have two SLWs, both supposed to be pullets. Willow, my 23-24 week old SLW acts like a rooster. She is much larger than my other SLW and she is the dominant one. She holds her head up high and is definetly the boss. -When I approach Willow and my other pullet Joy, she fluffs up the feathers on her head and flaps her wings in a stance that pretty much reads: "I am challenging you. I am dominant over you." -When I try to pick up Willow she tends to cry out and flap her wings on my face in what seems to be frustration and anger. It kind of hurts (hahaha). -Also sometimes when I approach Willow and the other SLW, I kneel in front of them and Willow will jut out her chest and stand tall until she can promptly stab my head with her beak. Hard. In general, Willow is very dominant, yet she is very affectionate and after she does this little routine of flapping her wings in my face and stabbing my head, she will perch on my shoulder and preen herself. Here are some pics of Willow: -The first pic with both chickens: Willow is on the left. -The second pic with both chickens: Willow is on the right.
