Hi Everyone! I purchased 8 Dixie Rainbow chickens (aka Pioneers) 6 days ago and they are now 8 days old. They are quite friendly and don't completely run away when I put my hand in their box. They'll move away then come back. Diamond, one of my chicks, will NEVER EVER run away! Even when everyone else might move away, she's ALWAYS the one to come forward and check me out! It's almost like she's fearless. In fact, she likes to jump up on my hands and on my arms. She is very sweet and, up until now, I never seen her act *ANYTHING* besides sweet and snuggly. Here's what's happening...I noticed that when i'm petting Diamond and then I stop petting her and then go pet another chick, named Buttercup, (Diamond doesn't only do this to Buttercup, I think she does it to everyone. Just using Buttercup as an example) Diamond will come running over and completely JUMP on Buttercup, flapping her little wings to catch some air and then just pounces on the poor chick. Buttercup will let out a shrill scream and then Diamond will back off...once I stop petting Buttercup at least. I've never seen any of the other chicks do this to her. Is this bullying, or just common chick "pecking order"? I didn't think it was that bad until earlier today. I reached in to take out the waterer for changing and cleaning and Diamond did the same thing to my hand as she does to the other chicks: She started running over to my hand and flapped her wings and then jumped on my hand, squawking like I was an intruder. None of the other chicks do this to me....It's like she's trying to protect the other chicks, but then also jumps on them as well!!! It's quite confusing!!!!!! She hasn't left any marks on my hand, but then again, she's 8 days old!!!! She could probably really break my skin if she does this full grown I just am wondering where my sweet little chick has gone!!!!!!! If you had any tips, that would be VERY helpful!!!!!! Thanks!!!!
