This morning my (one remaining) silkie, who just announced his gender about a week ago, attacked my hand. I went outside to get in my car for work, and he came around the car 'talking' to me as he usually does. He kept sidleing close to me, and I'd reach out my hand to try and pet him, as he seemed a little less skittish than usual. He'd back up a little and dance a little closer, back and forth. I finally managed to pet him a bit. He usually keeps out of arms reach, but does like to follow me around the yard, and down the driveway. Suddenly he grabbed the skin on the back of my hand and held on. Not a peck, more like the way the SLW rooster grabs the hens when mounting them. The silkie rooster has tried to sneak a chickie quickie with a couple of the girls, but I don't know if he's been completely successful yet. Is he just getting aggressive, now that he's crowing? Or is he REALLY confused, and in love with my hand? I have 10 assorted hens, but the SLW rooster is about 4 x his size, so I don't know how lucky he's getting with the ladies.
