    Just post your experience. The second worst time a bird of mine hurt me was a broody hen defending her nest. Have fun!

    I raise a lot of geese, and during nesting season I have lots of bumps and bruises on my legs from them defending their nests.

    My chickens have never pecked me in my whole life, I got pecked for the first time yesterday when my best friends rooster nipped my nail polish.

    I once had a cochin rooster that bit me on the lip twice in the same day. He didn't stay very long....x)

    I also have a gander. He's normally a gentleman, but when his females go broody, he naturally tries to defend anything within twenty square feet of the nest. A few weeks ago, he was going at me. I usually grab his neck right behind his eyes- not tightly. If I can keep my hand there, then he can't reach me. I happened to be a little slow this particular morning, and he grabbed my wrist. I lifted my arm into the air, and he just dangled- hanging off of my wrist. I started waving my arm around, and he ended up letting go. I had a lovely colored wrist for weeks. :)

    My Australorpe, Pepper, HATES being picked up, and she has really sharp talons. (I think you know where this is going...) and I picked her up one day and she rotated her legs like she was riding a bike and her talons clawed my stomach. No blood, just really red marks.
