My Chicken Keeps Pecking My Leg

  1. My chicken, Feathers, she always pecks my leg and my brother's. She does it everyday, so I always wear snow pants to protect my legs when I take care of my chickens. She always leaves red marks on my leg. What should I do to make her stop? I tried breaking sticks to look tougher, she's easily scared when I ride my bike around the yard, but when I am not, she continues pecking at my leg. I need help to make her stop, I want to take off my snow pants before summer arrives, when the chickens need attention.
  2. You could try to give her mealworms she might start to really like you and stop pecking!
  3. Or maybe give her food, just one chicken? Because, when I feed my chickens, it is usually a game of Capture The Flag.
