    Is she pecking 'cause she's mean or just 'cause she thinks your shoes are shinny or your fingers are worms? 1 of mine, Holly, does that. She can't reisist pecking anything shiny, a wrinkle in my pants, a shoe laces, sometimes my fingers, etc. Really no way to stop that.

    well she kind of tilts her head to the side and kind of slowly makes a move, and the kind of chases you [​IMG]

    Well, the tilting the head to the side is probably just 'cause she's looking up at you (they tilt their head to look up). I don't know about chasing you around though. If she's jumping at you, she's mean, but my chickens love to follow me around. Maybe she's just do that??[​IMG]
