    I love the question that is always in my mind, Nature or Nurture.
    This little "guy" is a blue cochin bantam and when I put my hand in, he ran up to my hand, stomped his feet, flapped its wings and poked at me with his tiny beak!

    Then when I didn't withdraw, a black an yellow sibling rushed up to me and pecked at me.

    So far those are the only 2 out of 7 that have done this, hope that the first one is a roo, its a keeper if that is the case!

    (these guys are 4 days old, the pics were at 1 day old)

    My one mean, aggressive chick is called Hillary. My black chick is called Obama, and I said from the beginning that the loudest, obnoxious chick would be Hillary.

    She'll probably turn out to be a roo, so Hillary might not work.

    Yeah - I think she pretty much wears the pants in the family.
