    Hi all. I just joined your delightful forum.I have 4 hens. 2 Rhode Island Reds, 1 buff Orpington and one Black laced Whyandotte. Just started getting eggs. My RIRs have begun pecking me. Used to be friendly. Not sure why. I hold them, but one is getting aggressive.Any ideas?

    [​IMG] are you sure the mean one isn't a rooster -in-progress? Seems like they start out nice and as they approach roosterhood they get aggressive. Is this he/she the only one that is aggressive? If it gets worse maybe you should rehome or send to "freezer camp'.
