Joe, our faverolle roo, is nearly ten months old. I'm trying to decide if he's turning mean or if this is just normal behavior ... A couple of weeks ago DH messaged me to tell me that Joe had run after Ana (our 10 year old) and pecked her legs after she took him out of his pen in the garage. I laughed but I did tell all of the kids that if Joe did try to "attack" them that they should not run away - even if they really are afraid of him (which is no easy task when Joe is HUGE compared to our banties). I usually sit outside and watch the chickens for a bit when Joe comes out. A couple of times in the past week or so he has kind of walked sideways toward me and then just passed me by. He's done it to Jacob, too. Well, today I went out and Joe pecked my arm two times. I always keep an eye on him cuz he's my baby. He kind of danced around a little and then pecked me. I was just blaming this behavior on his being "frustrated". The poor guy started chasing the girls around and they all ran away from him. How can you tell the difference between agression and something else?
