I have 2 white leghorns, and 5 New Hampires reds..about 3 months old to the date. Each one is constantly trying to peck my hand, or my feet. This morning, the last lady to go out each day, the one I plan on working with on my vacation,to try to learn to walk down, not fly and hit the wall, took a good bite on my hand today. Drew blood. She was the last one in the coop, so I did scould her. Now I know white leghorns are higher strung, flighty birds, but the NHR's ??? They were so calm as chicks and I could hold them, and now, that they have been living in the coop/outdoor run a few months, they seem to be alot more aggressive. Will spending more time in the outdoor run with them help? If I do pick one up, they stay calm, and quiet, and I can rub their comb, but as soon as they are down, they are after my feet, and my legs! Any suggestions, don't want to be afraid of my own chickens. Also don't like being bitten....that really hurt this morning!
