Has anyone else ever had a chick that was just born mean? I have a standard mix chick that I hatched out and from the moment I moved him to the brooder box he has been aggressive like. I would put bets on that he is a Roo When I put my hand in to feed or water - he tries attacking it, even fluffs up and strutts. He has even started pecking my hand. He isn't the only chick in the batch. The other chicks are not like this at all, this is the first time I have ever dealt with an unruly chick of this nature. I know this may seem cute and all to some and it may at this point and time, but not when he is a mature large roo or hen.
