One of my newest hens, "LUCY" has been quite a handful since I picked her up from her previous owners. They said she was spunky and harassed their goats.... by spunky I think they meant a tad on the aggressive side. I chuckle now, because I named her on her first appreciated.now I think Lucy is short for Lu Lucifer. She chases the ducks, pecks at the back of my female pekins neck, she harasses the first ever of my hens to go broody & she even pecks at my 9 week old chicks if they get too close to the edge of their cage. I cannot count the times I've chased her with the water hose because she is picking on someone. However, when I pick her up she never attempts to peck or scratch me. I haven't gotten any eggs from her lately so I caught her today. She has a featerless patch on her neck. My first thought was molting but with her aggressive tendencies I wondered if maybe she being a grumpy because someone else is picking on her? Any guidance is appreciated!
