    I have 10 Dominiquers (not sure how to spell it correctly). They peck! Whenever they are caught, they try to get you! They will turn around and peck your clothing, reach down and get your hands, reach out and try to get whoever may be standing next to you. Such lil meaners!

    Is it just mine?

    My Americanas are not at all that nasty. They have been raised together in the same manner.

    My hens are very sweet and docile. The rooster turned aggressive at about a year old.
