Hi everyone, I am new to this site, and somewhat new to owning chickens. I have an issue tho, and didn't know where to get any answers. I hope someone can help!! First I guess a little background is important. Around June, a random Rhode Island Red hen showed up at my house. She was very friendly. She ran up to my husband when she saw him, sat on his feet and never left! We bought two others after that so she wouldn't be alone. I do not know how old she is, but is full grown and over the summer layed an egg a day. She would follow us around, let us pet her and even tried to get into our house. However, the last month or so she has gotten mean and violent. She pecks at me whenever I feed them. its a huge ordeal. If she is out of her coupe she will go after my feet, and not in a funny playing way. it is clear she is being agressive. Her neck gets long, and it looks like she is getting ready to fly and attack me. Yesterday she did this and I had my 11 month old in my arms! I am getting really worried! Help please!
