I have twenty chicks, five of them Dominiques. One Dominque, Lucy, is a sweetheart and comes to me and lets me hold her. Another pullet, Roseanne, jumps up on my knee and proceeds to peck the heck out of me. I hold her and pet her and as soon as I put her down she is after me. I have tried snapping my teeth (not a pretty site I am sure. LOL) at her and act like I am going to bite her head off...now I have done this AFTER she showed no effort to quit attacking me..but it does no good. If I put her on the floor she proceeds to pinch my legs and then jumps up on me and starts pecking again. She even tries to chase me out of the coup as I am leaving. What is going on with her?? LOL I thought she might need more attention but that isn't working either. she might be a sweet bird if this agressive behavior ever stops. They will be five weeks old this Thursday.
