    well my gf has a small RIR chick, maybe 3 months, hasnt grown very much. well it was time to throw her (but i dont think so) in the big run. well it was evening feeding time and i went in there, fed them, and sat down and watched. well i noticed movement underneath my legs and there she was. i reached down to pet and bam, she pecked me. i was like woah,lol. then i reached down again she grabbed ahold of me then proceeded to flog (it doesnt hurt) I was like at this age, I think my gf's she is a he.
  2. Ruby my smallest chick, RIR cross, is doing that to me at 6 weeks. She grabs flesh and twists after sneaking up on me. I had started to wear shorts in the coop because of the heat, oh my...I've been yelping very loud over her and she doesn't like that. I don't want to be bullied by hen or roo so I'd appreciate answers too!
